But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. II Corinthians 4:7-9

Observations

• Rejoice! God is at work on your behalf.
• You are a valuable vessel of God on display.
• No matter what comes your way, be an overcomer in Christ.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank you for continuing to shape and strengthen me. I thank you for making me a treasured container of your peace and power. Lord, I ask that you will help me face the day in a spirit of assurance. Help me remember not matter what comes my way, you are still in control. Amen! Amen! Amen!
