Perhaps was the word on my heart during a large part of my run on Saturday. This word, especially the two instances that I immediately recalled from Scripture, is packed full of hope.
“Perhaps the Lord will help us. Nothing can keep the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.” 1 Samuel 13:6
“Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14
I love the endless possibilities of perhaps. I love the faithfulness of perhaps. I love the humble confidence and reverent dependency of perhaps. Perhaps doesn’t have all the answers. Perhaps is not presuming. Perhaps is not arrogant.
I want to live life in the realm of perhaps.
I want to live in that constant state of hope-filled understanding that He is Lord over our lack and our limitations.
Perhaps is the door to His plenty.
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
