1 Samuel 15-16, 2 Corinthians 4
God’s timing is perfect… I have fallen behind in the readings, but this is one that I needed to read today. My mental health is always in flux, I have been struggling with depression lately, but this entire chapter of 2 Corinthians jumped out at me. I may be struggling, but through that God is still here with me, and he can use me in my weakness for something far better than I can imagine.
May we obey and listen to the Lord rather than presume on his kindness and rebel against him by rejecting His Word.
6For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. amen !! -ellie
2 Corinthians 4…the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. …7But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
Our weakness allows His great glory to be displayed. We are pressed on every side but not crushed! We have His great power in us, which is why we never give up!!!
Verse 18 in Corinthians (While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.) points back to what Samuel said when he was looking for the future king, “man looketh on the outward appearance but God looketh on the heart”.
The outward appearance doesn’t matter, because it is temporal. The heart and what is inside matters because it is eternal
One of the Saddest lines in scripture “and God regretted”. Really stood out to me about the nature of Gods heart and how it aches when we let Him down. Makes me want to love Him better
