Just A Thought

Just A Thought:

I Thessalonians 2:18 “Wherefore we would have come unto you, even

I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.”

Paul wanted to come back to minister to them and to visit with

them. It would have been like going home, because they had so eagerly

accepted Paul and his teaching here. Satan is the author of all lies

and the source of all hindrance to the gospel. Paul’s own personal

desire was to go to see them, but sometimes our desire is not the

desire of the Lord. Satan could not have prevented Paul from going

back there any time he wanted to unless God gave Satan permission to do this. Unknowing to Satan, he sometimes plays right into the hands of God. God uses for good what Satan intended for evil. God perhaps had plans for Paul to go to another church at this time. If you are a Christian, Satan has to get God’s permission to attack you. Our

problems come to make us strong and to show us how badly we need God.
