The disciples today were sent forth with explicit instructions: ‘Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel’ (Matthew 10:5b-6).

Anyone concerned would have wondered ‘what happens to those not covered in this mandate? To this, the charge to Paul years later is highlighted “This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel” (Acts 9:15)

It is very tempting to think that God is in the gambling business. That with the creation of man and the choice accorded them to do as they choose to, things would result in a certain way. It is however worth bringing to our attention that “nothing takes God by surprise”. We won’t wake up one morning and hear Him say ‘now that was unexpected’

So when you don’t see a reason or a way, when you can’t tell the exact how or when, when all you get back isĀ silence in your confusion, even then God is saying: ‘All the basis are covered. There is already a plan’.

Beloved, there is a way to arrive at God’s set destination, the question is whether you will remain patiently aligned and trust long enough for the plan to be unfolded.
