Galatians 4:13 Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.
Paul preached the gospel to the Galatians because of an infirmity of the flesh. What surely looked like a set back turns out to be salvation for an entire group of people.
I am sure that Paul had plans and was on his way some where. He may have even thought about how this infirmity was causing him problems and getting him off track. But it wasnâ€™t. God was at work even in this!
I wonder what God is doing in us that we do not understand. I wonder what would happen if we would just relax and trust God in the events of our lives. What looks like a set back just might be for a very good purpose.
I doubt that any of us would say that this was an accident. We know that God knows what He is doing in our lives.
So today the challenge is to look to God and see what He is doing. To trust Him with our lives and not complain about how things aren’t going like we want.
I am sure the Galatians would thank God for the fact that Paul had an infirmity in the flesh that would send him there way.
