8/31/19: 2 Corin. 4:13-5:10; Psalm 44:9-26; Proverbs 22:13
I have a bit of a technical background and at work when I am presented a new idea or a challenge the first thing I will do is examine the details & “look for the data.” I trust what I can see.
This process usually works pretty well for making earthly decisions. But for answers of an eternal nature Paul’s penned words express a totally different reality:
2 Corinthians 4: 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Corinthians 5: 7 For we live by faith, not by sight.
What a marvelous aspect of faith — at times we must throw away our “data” and just reach-out in faith knowing that the Lord’s will carries us.
