PRAYER: Please pray for those who don’t know Jesus in your life.
DEVOTION: “Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.” – 2 Timothy 2:25-26
The choice of words here is a bit perplexing to me. Paul uses the word “perhaps”. Perhaps God will come change their hearts.
It’s interesting to me. Even Paul, this scholar among men, couldn’t get definitive in this section. It says to me that there is always hope but there are times where hearts may not change. Truth may not be heard. People may fall into the traps that are set.
Perhaps….it makes me think. Does it do the same to you? Maybe we don’t have all the answers and God is using even the negative and the ugly for His good. “He makes all thing work together for our good.”
So. Things looking bleak this week? Perhaps they’re supposed to be. Perhaps God is setting you on this path to lead to another truth that you can’t see yet. Another road that must be taken.
