Imagine Mary's feelings as she watched Jesus die on the cross. Bro. James Bell asks "Did she think when Jesus was born that this would be God's plan?" When we are at those points of confusion, when events are unfolding contrary to what we expected, we need to look to God who knows and sees all. We need to be cautious how we pray - sometimes we ask for our will to be done, rather than God's. How long does it take for us to recognize God's hand in our difficult situations? Our spiritual man can look beyond the current physical situations. When we lean to our "natural man" understanding, we set ourselves up for a fall.
