When the Lord God gave Saul of Tarsus the new name "Paul" (the Roman derivative of Saul) it was because he wanted him to forge a new path through establishing Christianity and the message of redemption among the Gentiles. Paul was required to do what no one had previously done, and what no one had dared to do. With the full authority of God, he turned his world upside down.
If God has renamed you "Paul" in preparation for his kingdom, it means that he has appointed you to a high calling, one that requires you to forge a new path forward into unchartered territory. You cannot wait for God's instructions on how to move forward. You must simply move innovatively toward the goal he has set for you, applying creative solutions to the earth's problems as they are encountered. When you feel blocked or stopped, he will show you how to move forward, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When you feel weak or tired, he will lift you up out of the miry pit. And when all has been said and done, the victory will be yours, the reward will be yours, but the glory will be his.
