We are dull of comprehension because we so often let the cares of this world blind our eyes; but if we can be open to God, we shall see that he has a greater plan for us in the future then we have ever seen in the past. It is God’s delight to make possible to us that which seems impossible, and when we reach a place where He alone has right-of-way, then all the things that have been misty and misunderstood are cleared up.
This like precious faith that Peter is writing about in 2 Peter 1:1-8, is a gift that God is willing to give to all of us, and I believe God wants us to receive it so that we may subdue kingdoms, work righteousness, and if the time is come, to stop the mouths of the Lions. We should be able under all circumstances to triumph, because we have no confidence in ourselves, but our confidence is only in God. It is always those people who are full of faith that have a good report, that never murmur, that are in the place of victory, that are not in the place of human order but of divine order, since God has come to dwell in them.
This like precious faith is for all; but there may be some hindrance in your life that God will have to deal with. It seems to me as if I had experienced 1000 road engines come over my life to break me up like a Potters vessel. There is no other way into deep things of God but a broken spirit. There is no other way onto the power of God. God will do the exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think for us when he can bring us to a place where we can say with Paul from Galatians 2:20
“it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;”
