2 Cor. 12:3 And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows.
I love this simple mindset, that is so easily overlooked. Paul says "I dont know." Pride can easily manipulate us into instead of asking the LORD on things, we assume we already know what to do. Outside of His written word given to us, I dont recall a time where we are ever to make a decision without at least Godly counsel. Even in seemingly clear agendas, God doesnt always do things the same way twice. Man gets trapped into a set method and it becomes a dead tradition. I want a fresh, alive, experience with the LORD, and that only comes as we spend time with Jesus daily. Paul here, has this fresh living relationship with his Savior, where he doesnt assume anything, and must consult Jesus for real answers. I dont want to portray Jesus as a micromanager, that He is not, He just knows everything. Why not go to the source who knows all? Its our choice. God knows, he says!
