By this point in my life, I know some things.
I know Newton’s Laws. I know the multiplication tables. I know the cases for nouns in English, Latin and Greek.
And I know almost every line of dialogue in Jaws and Star Wars.
But I also know what it’s like to be a wife, and a mother.
I know the grief of losing someone close to me.
I know the satisfaction of reaching a goal, but I also know rejection and failure.
I’ve seen my prayers answered. I’ve felt the comfort of God’s presence. I’ve also heard His gentle, yet unmistakable, no.
For most of Paul’s life, he had studied God. After Damascus, he knew God.
His confidence came from experience.
So does ours.
Every experience invites us to a deeper understanding of Almighty God.
Every situation is a chance to strengthen our resolve that Jehovah is God and beside Him is no other.
What do you know?
