“was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone;”
Galatians 1:16 ESV
God has a plan and time for all things. God had set Paul apart even from his birth but it took time for that plan to be put into action. However at the right time, God was pleased to reveal Jesus to Paul and in the life of Paul to others. It may seem like only chaos abounds in our lives, that everything is just a random jumble of dates and times; but not to God. God has a timetable and although He exists outside of time, He uses time for us.
Timing is everything as many of us have heard and experienced. At the right time, according to His will, Jesus will be revealed to us and through us. God’s intention is to use us to the praise of His glory. When the time is right, God will peel back the weakness of our nature and reveal His Son. God isn’t trying to make a better version of us but to revel His Son in us. We don’t need to be preoccupied with trying to be better but completely disappearing so that the only one seen is Christ. As John said in John 3:30 He must increase and I must decrease. The plan is that Christ would be revealed in us all the time.
