2 Corinthians 1:8-9 – We do not want you to be uninformed about the hardships we suffered…far beyond our ability to endure. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – While Paul did not have the ability to endure, we know that he did until he was martyred. During all this he learned to rely on God.
My Advice – Learn from hardships. Learn to rely on God. He will never fail you.
