And Agrippa said to Festus, “He could have been set free if he hadn’t appealed to Caesar.”Acts 26:31-32. The easiest way is not always Gods way. If Paul had not appealed to Caesar he could have been set free. But it was not Gods will for Paul to be set free. In the natural, at that time, people would have thought that God had let Paul and others down by keeping Paul captive, but that could not have been further from the truth. It was in captivity that Paul wrote the book of Romans, one of the greatest books in the Bible. Paul also wrote other profound letters that are as true and relevant to us today as they were 2000 years ago. Praise God today that He has your life in the palm of His hand. When things don’t go according to plan, don’t be disappointed, just keep trusting God. Gods ways are not our ways, and what may not be obvious to you, may be the opening for God to do something amazing in your life.
