10 Women in the Bible Who Struggled to Trust God’s Plan
For the past two chapters, Stephen has been before the Jewish high council the high priest, elders, etc. At the end of chapter 7, the people run Stephen out of town and stone him to death. Saul was in hearty agreement with putting him Stephen to death. Saul goes to the Chief Priest and gets arrest warrants for Damascus so he can arrest any Christians found living there and bring them to Jerusalem—presumably to face the same fate as Stephen. When Saul gets to the border of Damascus, the Lord hits him with such a blinding light it literally knocks Saul off his horse. Then Jesus tells Saul, who is now totally blind, to get up, go into the city and wait to receive further instruction. Now we come to my favorite part of this story.
Yet God has a purpose and a plan for each and every one of us. We all have unique gifts and talents. We all have unique perspectives, certain friend groups, and various workplaces. God uses this rich diversity to carry out his will, and his plans are always bigger, bolder, and better than anything we could ever imagine. Although you may feel that your life is ordinary, in the hands of our maker the extraordinary is always possible.

T he Bible is full of stories about faith. Here are just five of my favorites. Abraham is mentioned several times in the Bible for some of the great things he accomplished, but Romans 4 says that he was saved because of his faith and not because of this works. Hebrews 11 says that he followed God even though he was not sure where he was going. God gave Abraham the promise that the Redeemer would come through his family.
