Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. 2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we 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 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

Another strategy of the devil that has destroyed many people is unbelief. Inability to accept God’s Word as it is and apply it has cut so many lives short. The children of Israel could not enter into the promised land because of unbelief (Hebrew 3:18-19). Despite God’s effort to convince them with ten plagues in Egypt that He is not a man, crossing of the Red Sea, Provision of Manna and water in the wilderness, they perished because of unbelief. The antidote is belief and confession (Romans 10:9-10).

PRAYER: Pray for grace to believe every Word of God.
