During my morning prayer, I perceived that many Christians would get so disappointed by how 377A has turned out that their love will grow cold. Indeed, Matthew 24:12 (NASB) says: “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will become cold.”
But we remember what our Lord said in very next verse after saying this: “But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 24:12; ESV)
I also perceive that many Christians put limits to what God can do. Specifically, they expected God to protect them from an onslaught of wickedness through the preservation of a manmade law.
In John 11, Martha and Mary limited Jesus by thinking that the Lord could only heal the sick.
Hence, they were disappointed that Jesus could not come to heal their brother Lazarus before Lazarus had died.
But it was not God’s intention to work according to how Martha and Mary thought that things should be done. God’s intention was far greater than their minds could perceive – God’s intention was for Lazarus to be raised from the dead!
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
