Are you a planner? Maybe you have a 1 year, 3 year or even 10 year plan?
Paul had plan. It was to be a witness in Jerusalem. 40 men plotted against him to bring him to his death. However right before this point Jesus warns Paul and says, “Be encouraged, Paul. Just as you have been a witness to me here in Jerusalem, you must preach the Good News in Rome as well.” vs11
Shortly after he is taken to Rome and placed in prison... "a safer place to be when people are trying to kill you." God had a plan for him. It may not have looked pretty with a bow on top, however, it not only saved Paul but got him to Rome where he would later continue to witness just as promised.
What's your plan? Are you willing to let God change it? Lead it? Even without a pretty bow and a stamp of guarentee?
When we yield to Jesus amazing things happen. Plans change but Jesus forever remains.
