Verse 4: “lest if any Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we (not to speak of you) should be put to shame by this confidence.”

Paul was reminding the Corinthians that it was “put up” time (no shut up here!). He had boasted of the Corinthians and their zeal to give; now was the time for a collection to be made for the saints in Jerusalem. Paul reminded them of the shame that would happen if any from Macedonia came with him, after all that had been said of the Corinthian church, and they found the Corinthian Christians to be “not up to their reputation”.

Have you ever let anyone down? Everyone has had disappointments in their lives. People are human, and everyone, no matter how hard he or she tries, eventually lets someone down. But God never lets you down. He may say no, or He may say wait, but He is always faithful. Case in point I have to share: I have had a difficult situation on the project I’m on at work. We had a demonstration of our project, and some manager make disparaging remarks (not the customer, mind you, but a third party). We’ve all been on edge with deadlines, our technical lead (a very intelligent leader) has been very ill and doing his job and the project manager’s, and the situation looked to blow up in our faces the next day (today). I prayed on the way to work, knowing that the God of today is already in tomorrow, that He was already there, and prayed for His deliverance of this situation. Not only did God calm the situation down, but relationships were mended, and even the tech lead had good news from his doctor and CT scan results. I couldn’t help but praise God on the way home (and yes, I was cranking “Let There Be Praise” by Sandi Patti about 5 times in a row on the drive home!)

God is good, all the time. No matter how dark or deep the situation is, He lives up to His reputation. In your deepest need, turn to Jesus!

Have a blessed day!
