Copy of REASON AND ASSUMPTION Matthew 6_25 (7).png

“Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me—to keep me from exalting myself” (2 Corinthians 12:7)!

Having been given a glimpse of eternity’s heavenly paradise (v.2), Paul now views his suffering in a different light. He has come to understand that both his life and suffering is but an infinitesimal moment in the unfolding purposes of God. This isn’t to diminish the significance of our lives nor our pain but, rather, to reframe both with the reassurance that God is working through our present circumstances in ways far exceeding anything our finite minds could ever imagine or comprehend.
