What people in the Bible faced

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 April 2024

Psalm 71:5
‘For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.’

I found a very interesting scripture concerning the life of one of the great Apostles.  The Apostle Paul was a man who was mightily used by God, BUT he also had to face things that did not make sense.

2 Corinthians 4:8 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do.

Paul wrote these words: ‘We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do.’
Here is a mighty man of God who has had dramatic experiences with God and yet we see him having to face troubles that he cannot explain.  He was also facing things that did not make sense.
Let this encourage you as you face things that don’t make sense.
