    Most difficult Scripture?

    Hi this is my first post in years.

    Has there been any discussion about Romans 9:11 and 16 before? I find these two verses and their context very sobering. Probably the most difficult in all of the Bible. Reason: It is comforting to believe that if anyone just seeks after God hard enough one can find Him, but this scripture indicates otherwise?

    Romans 9:
    11 And the children were yet unborn and had so far done nothing either good or evil. Even so, in order further to carry out Godís purpose of selection (election, choice), which depends not on works or what men can do, but on Him Who calls [them],

    16 So then [Godís gift] is not a question of human will and human effort, but of Godís mercy. [It depends not on oneís own willingness nor on his strenuous exertion as in running a race, but on Godís having mercy on him.]
