A thought running through my mind today:
Paul knew he had to answer God’s call to preach the Gospel in Rome; the seat of one of the most oppressive governments in history.
He was so focused on answering that “God- call” that NOTHING would be allowed to hinder him. He would complete that task no matter what he had to endure. And endure he did – prison, shipwreck, snake bite, assassination attempts, beatings, stoning’s, lies about him and his ministry, attacks from “religious” people, attacks from pagans, sickness, unruly spiritual children, his “thorn in the flesh”, abandonment by colleagues – but to him, NOTHING was more important than fulfilling the call and task of God.
Today, stay focused on what GOD’S CALL on your life is, and trust Him to get THROUGH every obstacle Satan places in your path.
