“Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel.” Philippians 1:12.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Song of Solomon 5-8, and Philippians 1.
God has plans for us.
Silly us when we try to make our own plans. We do not know best.
If we cling to God’s leadership He will see that we are exactly where He wants us to be. It may well not be the place we envisioned being BUT it’s His place.
Paul is in prison. On at least one occasion, an angel appeared and his chains were removed and he escaped. That isn’t happening this time but Paul has used the change of plans to please God. Others in his current midst have been exposed to the Gospel.
God used the “inconvenience” of jail time to spread the Gospel there. It wouldn’t have worked otherwise.
“Lord, You know best. Forgive me for being troubled by “inconveniences” that come along. You have Your Own ways of getting my attention. Thank You for that. Help me to trust You second by second. I love You, Lord.”
God has a plan for my life. Will I let it play out?
