April 21, 2019, DAY 113: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: 2 Corinthians 1-3

April 21, 2019

16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:16-18, NIV)

The Journey of Surrender

 Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. (Philippians 4:6, AMP)

“I trust you all did the readings for today,” the professor began class wryly. “Thoughts?” he asked as he looked around. Getting the discussion going was always a challenge. “Well, yeah. I don’t get it,” a freshman piped up. The professor motioned for her to continue. “I was watching the TV show M*A*S*H last night and one of the patients believed that he was Jesus. In trying to ascertain how far gone the solider was, the psychiatrists asked him if God answers all prayers. The Jesus soldier replied ‘Yes. Sometimes the answer is no.’ I don’t get it. Why pray at all then? We have seen politicians, and others, offer their ‘thoughts and prayers’ after devastating events, but nothing ever changes. So what’s the point? Especially, if He is just going to say no?” “Good questions,” the professor responded. “What is the point of prayer? Are we only supposed to pray for what we want? Is God like Santa? Magically granting all our desires?” Another freshman jumped in, “I always looked at prayer as a way to make your wants and desires known, and then leave it to God to sort it all out.” The professor smiled. “Not exactly, but you’re getting there. Who else has thoughts?”
