Acts 9:1 records the persecution of believers. It says “Saul was breathing threats.” It’s an interesting way of putting it. Saul may have been making threats, but he did it while he was breathing. That’s important. Even though Saul was an enemy of faith, a persecutor, as long as he was breathing, there was hope. He could still use his breath to confess Yeshua, Jesus as Lord. So he would say, “Who are you Lord?” You look at people who seem so far from God, but as long as they’re breathing they can change and there’s hope. Breathing is not forever. Remember our breaths are numbered. If you think you’ll never live the life God has for you or tell yourself that you might as well give up, you’ll never change. In order to say those things you have to be breathing. There’s still hope for you. Saul was breathing threats, but he was breathing, and he became the greatest apostle who ever lived. So be encouraged. You might be telling yourself there’s no hope, but when you do that you’re bearing witness that there’s hope because you’re still breathing.
Scripture: Isa. 40:31
