“Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.” -Job 38: 2-3
What does it mean to try be justified by the Law? How can a sinful person have a right standing with a just God? What was Paul dead to, what was he free to do, and what was he freed from?

The Holy Spirit will provide the answer you need in due season, but until then continue to ask these healthy questions. Until then, be thankful that God has put a new song in my heart a new desire in my path.
“At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.'” -Matthew 11:25
