Thank God for His mercy and that there is a Gospel and may we too with Paul wherever we are at, live in such a way that we can say “… my circumstances are working out to ADVANCE The Gospel.”-{Phil 1:12}.

In the circumstances you find yourself in with the people you find yourself in, they are OPPORTUNITIES to ADVANCE THE GOSPEL. ASK God for favor with the people and share the Good news which is GOD news… and trust the HOLY SPIRIT to make real and do what only He can do, open blinded spiritual eyes to see their sin and then the SAVIOR WHO SAVES FROM SIN, “and you Shall call His NAME JESUS AND HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SIN!”-{Matt 1:21}

“It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.” -{1 Tim 1:15}. Paul was imprisoned, he had envious people against him, his circumstances were difficult yet in those circumstances instead of focusing inward he focus’ on God’s Business and the care of the souls of people in the circumstances he finds himself in. He wasn’t waiting until his circumstances changed for the “better” before he reached out, but his intent was fixed, The Furtherance of the Gospel in the circumstances he found himself in!

In the circumstances you find yourself in, look around and see who has God placed there. Paul in Philippians 1:16 said he was “appointed for the defense of the Gospel.” The word “appointed” was  a military word used for soldiers who were strategically placed, designated, set, in a specific place with a specific purpose.

In the circumstances God has placed you in, you are strategically placed with Divine purpose which includes, that in your circumstances you may advance the GOSPEL!

Your circumstances are opportunities to advance the Gospel!

You  are “appointed,” Strategically placed by Him for Him to benefit others and point them towards Him!
