“When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened.”
What’s it going to take for you to fall down and die?
What do you have to hear?
To surrender your all and die to your self.
I am trying to fall down but I want to stand and run with my life.
I am trying to die but I want to live mostly. I want to experience everything.
Dying is so painful. I don’t want to lose anything.
But that is the heavenly call.
“If anyone would come after me he must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me”
The call has not changed. It is the same today.
So right now learn to surrender and give it all up for Him. Die to your wants and ambitions and desires and plans. Die to you. Die to your reputation. Let it all go.
If Ananias had truly heard from God and obediently fallen to his knees in worship and died to his flesh then He would have lived to give his testimony. But he didn’t and may we all learn from his error.
