justice delayed–God’s will accomplished

007Acts 23:12-24:27

Those guarding Paul knew that the accusations against him were false.  They took great pains to protect him against the wrath of the non-Christian Jews.  The Holy Spirit delivered Paul by letting his nephew overhear the plot against him. But, still, it was long years of waiting in custody, with no verdict.  Justice was being delayed, but God’s will was being accomplished.  Paul had access to all the other members of his missionary band.  He could continue to study and teach, without worrying about being attacked by his enemies.  His mission would continue, even when his freedom is limited.  Sometimes the LORD puts us in situations like this as well.  We are his servants. He decides how we will accomplish his mission.

LORD, we surrender to your will.  Use us as you see fit, to accomplish what you have planned, to your glory.
