1 CORINTHIANS 2:8 NLT | “BUT THE RULERS OF THIS WORLD HAVE NOT UNDERSTOOD IT; IF THEY HAD, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CRUCIFIED OUR GLORIOUS LORD.”
On the Cross hung Jesus; for us, no more sin and it’s condemnation. In the grave lay Jesus; for us, unlimited access to the Father. In hell went Jesus; for us, keys to life everlasting. In resurrection we find Jesus; establishing us in victory over death and the works of darkness.
We see God’s restoration of mankind as it is in retrospect, because His ways are beyond finding out except for the determined seeker who passionately loves the Lord. He uses the simple things of life to confound the wise and elevate His people.
So, don’t be discouraged by the seeming negatives or problems you may face. Instead, in every situation give thanks to God for this is His perfect will. God is working with your experiences to produce His glory in and for you. Therefore, come into agreement with Him by embracing the process. And, just like Jesus, the prince of this world will regret ever messing with you!
