Let us be glad when God uses others to continue to further the work we once were able to do. They may be inclined to do it differently so we need to give them the credit of being the Lord’s servant for that time and place. Paul was neither self-seeking nor filled with self-pity because of the circumstances in which he found himself. He could, and so should we, rejoice in all that God was doing through others as well as himself. It is not wrong to ask for prayer that the difficulties will pass. But there are resources and power available to us in the Spirit who can change everything in a moment if that is God’s will. When that does not happen, it is up to us to make that time an opportunity for the Gospel, rather than question the faithfulness of God. What could have brought sadness brought joy.
