    V. 18 - Paul KNEW something; He knew that those truly hungry for the truth would search it out (Acts 17:11) even if they heard a lie (pretence) they'd discover it and know the 'freedom' truth. Paul studied under Gamaliel, was a 'Pharisee of the Pharisees'; a SMART, wise man. that's why God chose him: God knew He could use all this for HIS kingdom, instead of satan's.

    this verse gives me hope, and reminds me that God The Father is working all things for our good in the right time and manner of his choosing, and that those of us that are called out of the world into fellowship with jesus and the holy spirit, for the glory of the father, need only do what is right and good in his sight.i will trust in Jesus for the strength to do what is right

    I think when we go through trials in our life, we should have confident in knowing that our Most High God is able and willing to do the impossible. if we just hold on to our faith. he will do and perform in our lives miraculous works if we stay obedient to his word. so lets all stay encourage until that day when the Most High God comes..
