This is yet another glorious reason to love, adore and be in total awe of our Father as well as our Brother and King Christ Jesus!
That God (and Jesus) is NEVER partial in dealing with anyone as written in Romans 2:11 and Ephesians 6:9 simply means He and our Lord are always FAIR, whether someone is a Christian or an unbeliever. This is well covered in Romans 2:11-16.
However, the significance of this wonderful truth extends way further than this as it is applied to each person who has ever lived. For instance, someone may appear to be carrying a heavier load or burden than another individual, apart from chastisement for a sin or sins.
But rest assured that this ‘someone’ has been properly fitted to handle that seemingly heavier load or burden. This is wonderfully illustrated in 1 Corinthians 12:12-25 and reveals how God and Jesus have fitted each member of the human body to perform its particular and designated function. The foot is never called upon to carry out the task of the nose….and the list goes on.
Likewise, another nice illustration is shown in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 concerning the gifts of the Holy Spirit. If someone is gifted to perform healings then don’t expect her or him to speak prophecies….they have not been so fitted.
This is true concerning EVERY situation a human will experience in her or his life. For instance, if they are given a crippling, physical infirmity to endure then they are fitted with that extra ability from God and Jesus that you and I would NOT have. This is much like a blind person inheriting that extra-ordinary sense of hearing enabling them to cope with the loss of their sight, as well the mental capacity to handle their situation as well.
If a person appears to be raised in a very unpleasant and even disgusting environment and at a seeming disadvantage on many fronts, rest assured our Father and His Son have equipped that individual (whether believer or non-believer) to properly and successfully handle their situation….an ability you and I would not have unless They would properly fit us if we were in that same situation.
There is a very good example in Exodus 16:18 of how God and Jesus ALWAYS balance out EVERY situation for both believers and non-believers during our lives. In this narrative, the ones that gathered a lot to eat had none left over and the ones who gathered the lesser amounts still had no need for more….it ALWAYS nicely balances out….FAIR ‘n BALANCED!
Quite simply, what might scare and defeat me you could handle like a breeze if our Father and our Savior were to try you in that manner and then properly fitted you to handle it. And, how beautiful is the truth in 1 Corinthians 10:13 clearly stating NO ONE will EVER be tried beyond what we are able to bear.
How blessed and fortunate are ALL humans to have such a One as God is as well as His Son, but especially Christians.
Take care in Him,
