This verse is one I find myself resting in often. When this old body gets to aching, the world starts feeling as if it shaking from troubles, worries build up then I find myself in God’s word, seeking His strength cause when I am weak in Him I am strong. Think about the absolutely beautiful grace found through these words. That when we in our weaknesses rest entirely in Christ His power and grace will be sufficient to make us strong and weather whatever storm and trouble we face. And goodness knows we as believers and just people stuck in this world will face them. Lots of them, they’re even more sure than death. We always have the hope of being the caught up saints – this world we are in has reached a level of weirdness and evil that makes me wonder how much longer it will be before we get caught up and it’s game on again for Israel’s program.
Before I learned how to study and understand what God is doing and said to us today that really tore my nerves outta the frame. There were some dark dark days there when we listened to teachers who were all jacked up in their beliefs mixing law and grace, Israel and the Body, the second coming with our catching up, etc. I let myself get drawn away from God’s word and listening to man’s ideas. But my husband from the day he was saved saw right division and he began leading me, teaching me what he was seeing about what God was doing. He would study at work all day and then come home and share, I would listen and then study the next day. This continued till one day it clicked and I saw what he was talking about and all the confusion from before – like the whole gospel of the circumcision / uncircumcision; body of Christ being bride of Christ, the rapture and Revelation, etc. At this point we hadn’t really found anyone teaching this so we didn’t have a name he just recognized that the instructions in Paul’s Epistles were different than the rest of Scripture. Then one day he stumbled across a Message of Grace video by Richard Jordan and we had a name for how we were seeing in God’s word – right division; 2 Timothy 2:15 O wrote that down and memorized it as I began seeing the pieces of God’s puzzle clearly for the first time. That was over a year ago, my faith and edification in what God is doing today. That is what led to me really understanding 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 and realizing just how much more muchier than I could have ever even dared to hope God’s grace towards us is. The more I get to know Him through His word the more I thank Him, the more I dwell and rest in Him, the more I share Him and the truth of His glorious grace!
