2 Corinthians 4:7-9
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—
The treasure we carry is the precious Spirit of the Living God. It dwells within the believer, which is a fragile being made of clay.
Yet, with the Holy Spirit living in us we endure the most difficult things and are able to keep going – pushing on.
You may struggle through death, fear, despair, hopelessness, hatred, bigotry, malice, and anger.
You may face great temptation or disaster.
But you can keep going because the Holy Spirit empowers you to do so.
Don’t ever take your eyes off Jesus.
Let His strength become your strength.
