CLARITY IN CRISIS // JANUARY 26, 2021
As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.
Paul had wanted, even felt called by God to go to Rome. Initially he probably thought he would be going as a preacher, but with everything that happened, he went as a prisoner. His personal situation was uncertain but the gospel message went forth with clarity. Everyone knew why Paul was there.
Before the pandemic you may have wanted to spend more time with your kids or have more time for a hobby or considered changing jobs. Looking back at all that has transpired you may have gotten what you wanted (more time with your kids) but it wasn't delivered how you wanted it (you are now teaching your kids). We have lived through a major crisis but that doesn't mean we lack clarity. God has a purpose in the midst of the crisis.
Have you been praying for one thing but recognize God has purposed another thing? How has the crisis of the last twelve months produced more clarity in your life? Close your time today by praying this promise over your life:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
