To The Family,
2 Corinthians 2:14
“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”
This verse is about looking above and beyond our troubles to praise and thank God. Paul says that God always causes us to triumph. “Always” may not seem apparent in our current circumstance, but in due time we will see that God has worked every circumstance to give us the victory. In the midst of suffering, Paul thanked God.
Paul had been disappointed in his service for the Lord, and it seemed like a defeat, but through it all God has been good to him. Sometimes we feel that we have suffered a defeat in our warfare with Satan. But be assured that God has worked it out for you. Be convinced that the Lord has given us victory through Jesus Christ. “Thanks be unto God.”
