“And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities. 12Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, 13At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.” Acts 26:11-13
In the New King James version, verse 12 starts by saying, “While thus occupied.” I like that for you can see when you read that Paul was totally occupied with hunting the Christians down. He even thought He was doing it for God. However, a light from heaven stopped him in his tracks. I pray for every one of you that read this and have found yourself occupied with something other than God that a light would shine on you and bring you back to where you need to be.
