I keep learning more aspects of this verse.
We all as believers have been given spiritual gifts uniquely to us. Some mihave similar spiritual gifts, but not all believers have the same spiritual gifts.
We do have equal opportunity in this Church Age to come to Him through faith in Christ, that He continues to sanctify us.
He has a Plan and a specific plan for us where things have been logistically prepared for us before we were born. The trick is to be in the right place, at the right time, through faith in Him.
The more we grow in Him, sometimes the more we observe how He has molded the situation.
It is incredibly glorious to be in the right place, at the right time, to act through faith in Him, performing by His Will, as an agent for His Plan, always glorifying Christ.
In many ways it is only as hard as we make it, because the entire fight is His work. Have the struggle is simply to rest and place faith in Him, using what He has prepared us to work with in obedience to His Will.
We might have fantastic worldly talents, but in His Plan it might be a much simpler spiritual gift which He has chosen to use in a much less obvious fashion, fulfilling our place in His Plan by His agenda.
Don’t let the cosmic worldly system get you down, either by its unrighteousness or unjust consequences, and even moreso, do not be fooled by worldly systems offering righteous or just solutions in worldly terms as counterfeits to His Plan. They are simply good for nothingness by eternal standards.
“They are simply good for nothingness by eternal standards.”
These words gave me chills.
You write well....this will stick with me.
