   You’ve heard this before: If a you’ll just accept and give yourself to God, he will bless you and you will prosper. Look at the grand message the Lord told Ananias to take to the Apostle Paul.

.

“The Lord said to Ananias, ‘Go! this man [Paul] is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. I will bless him and abundantly give him many riches and bring great peace to his troubled heart, and he will rejoice evermore.’ “

   The Bible doesn’t say this at all!  Here’s what it really says:

.

The Lord said to Ananias, ‘Go! this man [Paul] is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.‘ “

   Following God means accepting the honor of doing for him what He considers necessary for His work on Earth. For that, He will provide all we need, not what we expect or dream about.
