(2 Corinthians 4:7-10 KJV) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.I have experienced the disruptions listed here: troubled, perplexed, persecuted, cast down. I have also lived through the miracles of the promises that not only level the scale, but bring my arm high into a world of joy and blessing.
For instance, I can be perplexed. I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know all the formulas. But I can remember when I was learning the basics of Algebra. Just because I didn’t get it the first time I did not call the teacher a deluded fool living in happy land. I never took Calculus. That doesn’t mean that I can’t accept that it exists and has a use. My God is bigger than I am. I expect to continue reasoning, learning and asking but if I could really understand all, He would not be much of a God, would He?
I can’t even understand my wife and I can prove to even you she exists.
So love the promises and keep on truckin’.
