With William Plumer in Romans, Morning

Romans 1:10
NAS – …always in my prayers making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you.
KJV – Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

“Like other things, journeys are prosperous or adverse, as the Lord vouchsafes or withholds his favor and blessing, v. 10. And we should acknowledge his hand in the commonest affairs of life. One of the most mischievous practical errors among even real Christian is that when the duty is comparatively easy, and the burden comparatively light, they attempt to go on in their own strength. Thus they often fail – sadly fail. Whereas, if they had humbly looked to God, they would have found favor and good success.” (Romans, 57)
