We just talked about this! And here in the first chapter of 2 Corinthians, Paul tells us that his group was under great pressure – far beyond their ability to endure. They thought they were going to die. But Paul says this happened so that they would learn to rely on God, not on themselves.
And then Paul reminds us something that was true for him and is true for us today. God has always delivered us in the past and he will deliver us again.
Such a comforting truth! I often remind myself of this reality in my life. God has always been faithful in the past. He will be faith now – in this situation I’m facing today.
It’s not in God’s character to drop the ball – to be too late or too early. His plan unfolds at just the right time in the right way – if we let it.
We will face trials and situations that are far beyond our ability to endure on our own.
But nothing is impossible with God!
