We glory in strength and power, but God thinks differently and works differently.
We frown on death and weakness but God uses it for His Glory. The cross does not appeal or make sense to the natural man, even as Christians we would rewrite the script, but God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. (Isaiah 55)
The Lord chose not to grant Paul’s request when he prayed that his thorn, that was a torment to him, should be removed.
