Living Above See Level… by Adrian Rogers
“The reason they keep striking the pot, the reason they keep after this earthen vessel is because there’s a treasure in this earthen vessel and instead of treasuring the treasure, they detest the treasure and so they’re after me.
You need to understand that there are three great enemies of our Faith, one is appearances, second, emotion, the third is reason.
Faith is the evidence of anticipation that is joined with assurance. Hope means there’s something that we anticipate happening and it actually has the anticipation of joy.
The prayer that gets to Heaven, starts in Heaven.
Faith is not contrary to reason, it just goes beyond… reason. And we have to ask ourselves so many times, are we just calculating and figuring rather than trusting the Lord? Now let me tell you folks, when a man lives above See Level, he’s going to see the invisible, and therefore He’s going to tap into the un-knowable Who is truly knowable, the Lord. And then he’s going to do the impossible, for with God, all things are possible.”
2 Corinthians 4:1-18
1 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
