Trusting the Lord while doing His work

Philippians Bible Background

10.06.2017 – New Testament: Phi 2.24

To read the Bible in a year, read Philippians 2 on October 6, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

We know Paul as a worker for the Lord Jesus Christ. All Paul’s plans centered around what Jesus wanted. However, the Lord allowed Paul to make plans. Therefore, he told the church in Philippi,

But I trust in the Lord that I myself shall also come shortly (Philippians 2.24). 

From Paul’s viewpoint, traveling again to Philippi fulfilled what he needed to do, and what he did was all for the Lord. Therefore, the apostle believed the Lord would help him get to Philippi. However, sometimes the Lord wanted him to do something else, and he did.

Questions:

  • Does your life center around what the Lord Jesus wants?
  • If not, what does it center around?
