The first response

[The Glory Unveiled]

But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. [ Galatians 1:15-16 ]

Our first response to any situation matters a lot. It is said that the first response that is given to an ill person in an emergency goes a long way to sustain or destroy that life. So whenever there is an emergency, whoever attends to the casualty or crisis is very critical as much as what they do. Because in that moment, the life of a person hangs in the balance. The first response also exposes the attitude of the one assisting. If apostle Paul, the author and speaker in the verse of scripture above had immediately consulted someone who probably didn’t know God’s call and mandate for him, he would most likely have missed his mark. This does not in anyway suggest that we do not need help, instead it suggests that we need help from only people or the person who can help us—the right people—and in this case, God. God who has called us into our purposes also has the right resources for us to realize those dreams and purposes. He would always make provision for the vision He gave us. There is a place for man’s help and there is a place for God’s input. If God would not lead us to an expected end, He would not lead us at all. So once you are led, it’s a sign that He would be with you every step of the way. Don’t give up, God’s got you.
