计划 [Plan]





Book: Romans (New Testament)
Author: Paul

Romans 1:13 :“Now I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that I often planned to come to you (but was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among the other Gentiles.”

Today’s Meditation: ‘often’ reveals that Paul was not being anyhow on the matter of spreading gospel to Romans. He had the fervour in this. Spreading gospel must be from the burden inside. As we seek for the will of God, we need to think of the environment as well. The exterior environment is not the only index of God’s leading. The passion and burden in us are important as well. The unfavourable environment does not mean God is forbidding us. The will of God and His leading work with time. The time might not be right now, but might be right in the future. Some people quote from James that we as Christians should not have plans but to put our hope in God to lead us. This is actually a Biblical misinterpretation. We can have plans, but we rely on God’s leading in the plan and while carrying out the plans.
