There is no doubt that life can bring changes from within our circumstances and daily responsibilities. We make an effort to plan our day to reflect our priorities and responsibilities only to change them at a last minute. Does this mean that planning is pointless and meaningless?
The apostle Paul had encounter some changes too in his plans as he prepared to preach and share the Gospel in Rome and Spain (Romans 1:13). But with the changes that Paul faced along his journey and trip, he was willing to go wherever God lead him (Romans 15:32). He understood that changes require adapting plans to allow a transition into the next season; Paul took on God’s will instead of his own will.
