Romans 15:28: Therefore, when I have performed this and have sealed to them this fruit, I shall go by way of you to Spain.


Again Paul said that after going to Jerusalem he would go to Spain and visit the Romans on the way (cf. v. 24). Paul got to Rome, but not when or in the manner he anticipated! (Acts 27–28) Whether he ever got to Spain no one knows for sure. Christians should plan ahead, but they should also be flexible. 1

Application

  • Read Proverbs 16:1,3,9
  • The biblical receipt for fruitful living:
    1. Plan your work.
    2. Commit your work to God.
    3. Trust God to direct your ways.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for a mind to think and a will to surrender.
