2 Corinthians 1.9-10
Instead of trusting in our own strength, to trust God totally since he's the God who raises the dead! And he did it, rescued us from certain doom. And he'll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing.
amen! this is especially for you! here's the full text (vv. 8-11): it may be so bad you don't think you are going to make it. you may feel like you've been sent to death row, that it was all over for you. as it turns out, it is the best thing that could have happened. instead of trusting in your own strength or wits to get out of it, you were forced to trust God totally -- not a bad idea since he's the God who raises the dead! and he did it! RESCUED YOU FROM CERTAIN DOOM! and HE'LL DO IT AGAIN!, rescuing you as many times as you need rescuing. you and your prayers are part of the rescue operation.
