Manna For Today: Saturday, December 10, 2016
II 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…
I’m so glad that God chose to put the precious gift of the Spirit in our frail jars. It serves as a constant reminder of who He is and who we are not. The power is His and the victory is His, yet in ‘His-God-Like’ way, He uses those tools to enable us.
When we are afflicted in so many ways, crushed by life’s circumstances, confused, threatened by despair, wrongly mistreated or even struck down, in us is a superior response of God that pushes back to the end that, what should have or could have taken us out is unable to and we rise!
Tap into God’s glory today, my friend. Rise above whatever may be confronting you, speak those words inspired by none other than Him, “I will rise,” then do it. Get up, stand up and go forward in Him.
Peace and blessings!
