Acts 9.13–15: Ananias answered, "Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he has done to your saints in Jerusalem; 14 and here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who invoke your name." 15 But the Lord said to him, "Go, for he is an instrument whom I have chosen to bring my name before Gentiles and kings and before the people of Israel.

Ananias had a problem. God summoned him to share the message of the gospel with the rabbi, Saul of Tarsus—the man we know as the apostle Paul. Yet, for Ananias, there was not a more unlikely man to become a follower of
Jesus Christ than Paul. Paul was a man with passion. He was esteemed and he was also an opinionated, legalistic, zealous man who was so sure of what he believed that he was willing to see people killed who departed from his understanding of faith in God. Paul literally had a “take-no-prisoners” approach to his faith

Ananias’ problem is our problem too! We have many people in our circle of relationships that we have judged unlikely (impossible?) to ever respond positively to Jesus Christ. Yet those we consider unlikely, God may consider a  "sure thing" because He personally knows the hearts of all.
