Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no one forbidding him. (Acts 28:30-31)
We need to understand that Paul was under house arrest. He was a prisoner of Rome. Nevertheless, he found this favor. It is amazing how God can take the most difficult of situations and truly work them to His glory and our good. Paul did not put his focus on getting out of his situation. He focused on taking advantage of his situation.
We may, more than often, be missing the blessings of the Lord by attempting to change things rather than using them to the glory of God. It may be worth the time to pray and ask the Lord if our present situation is meant for good or are we to attempt to change it. Personally, I frequently find myself under a lot of pressure. It seems as if there is a stress-baton being passed from one person to another and that it is my job to keep up with it. Nevertheless, like a suspension bridge, we maintain our strength under a certain amount of tension.
