I randomly ended up in four different Bible passages. And this week, they randomly collided.
See, I recently spent several weeks preparing for a talk on the supremacy of Christ. So Colossians 1 . . .
1:16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
And I’ve been studying Isaiah for about four years. We’re finally to chapters 45-49 . . .
45:12 I made the earth
and created man on it;
it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
and I commanded all their host.
45:9 “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,
a pot among earthen pots!
Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
or ‘Your work has no handles’?
And I’m leading the ladies of my church through Romans this year. Currently chapters 9-11 . . .
9:20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?
And my pastor’s preaching through Ecclesiastes for the next few months. So, of course, I’ve got a study group going, too . . .
3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
7:13 Consider the work of God:
who can make straight what he has made crooked?
Did you see the thread? I’m not sure whether to freak out, run for cover, ponder and analyze for hours, or laugh and move on, but I’m wondering if my Sovereign Creator is tryin’ to tell me somethin’ . . .
Meanwhile, my challenge to you?? Study a few Scripture passages for a length of time, and just see what thrilling collisions might happen right before your eyes. It’s crazy, y’all.
