God has shone in our hearts to give us light, and when you’ve knowledge of Jesus Christ through this gospel, that light of God is shining on you.
Yes my friend, God ordered the Gospel to shine on you, he caused you to understand the message about Christ.
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us" 2 Corinthians 4:7. Why is it so? So that everyone can see that this light is from God, and not our own doing, it’s "not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts" Zechariah 4:6.
These bodies of ours are constantly facing death just as Jesus did; "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;" so it can be clear to all that it is only Jesus Christ within keeping us safe.
"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Whether we die now, suffer now hunger now; these troubles and sufferings of ours are temporal, but will result in God’s blessing upon us. The troubles will soon be over, yet not worthy to be compared with the eternal joys to come.
Romans 8:38-39 says, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
