Saul, who was passionately persecuting Christians, was stopped short in his tracks by Jesus on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:1-9). Here, he was brought to the shocking realization that everything he had believed to be just and righteous, was in fact an affront to the Almighty God he thought he was serving by persecuting the Christians.

Because of this radical conversion, Paul's ministry spread the Good News of Jesus far and wide. Think how different the New Testament would be without the Epistles of Paul. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, 14 are attributed to the apostle Paul.  This is such an incredible reminder that God is greater than any problem we may be faced with. The will of God will always prevail despite the best efforts of man to do the contrary.

Perhaps you are praying for the salvation of a loved one who doesn’t even know that they are desperately in need of a personal meeting with Jesus. If so, hold onto this promise that comes from the second part of James 5:16 (NKJV).

'The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.'

Take heart and continue to pray fervently, because the God we serve is the God of the impossible and He will always be faithful to those who pray unceasingly for His will to be done.
