When it pleased God. August 25
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mothers womb, and called me by his grace. Galatians 1:15
Paul was recounting to the Galatians how he had been against Christ and his followers. But suddenly when it pleased God, everything changed. It seems there may have been a lot of people God could have called before Paul. But it pleased God to use him. In our lives we should never give up or grow discouraged. At any moment it may just please God to do something wonderful, beautiful in your life. We should expect the unexpected. God has often worked this way throughout history. He suddenly just does what pleases him. Also this may not always be what seems pleasant to us. He may do or allow things that we are not to comfortable with, but remember, this is His world and his work. The best things we can do is trust him, obey him, love him and praise him thru it all. We should make our plans, figure out somethings and do our best but at the same time leave some room for a surprise or two from God as we go because he will do what pleases Him.
