“I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning,” Ephesians 3:9 states. Paul tells of the provisions of God over His life. He was someone who persecuted Christians, but had been rescued by God. He believed wholeheartedly in the plans of the Lord, and especially Jesus Christ.
Why would God choose to keep this mysterious plan a secret? Why hadn’t he revealed it to generations before. These are difficult questions to answer. However, everything God did, He did as part of His plan. He never changed His plan or messed up His plan. It was and still is perfect in every way. Throughout history, He has been gracious with man. He was gracious with Israel when they continuously denied Him and turned from Him. 2 Peter 3:8-10 says it is not His will that anyone should perish. So He is longsuffering, waiting for people to turn to Him, always drawing them and leading them toward Him. We are part of His plan. He longs for us to explain His plan to everyone we meet just as Paul did.
