“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
Who has not ever had a broken heart? We all have. Life is full of disappointment. It is inevitable. This is not about cold hard reality, but glorious potential. God has placed His Spirit inside all of us as born-again believers. No longer on the outside, we are developing from the inside out. When we are pressed, it is the Presence of the Lord that keeps us from being crushed. When we are perplexed, it is the Spirit of the Lord that shows us the Truth (His Word) so that we do not despair. When we are hunted down, the Lord’s Angels surround us to keep us from harm as His Spirit never abandons us but calls for reinforcement. We get knocked down, but He lifts us up on wings like eagles.
As a child of God, we can never be destroyed. We have the Light of His Love shining in our hearts and if we are able to connect our faith to confident hope and bind ourselves to the altar than we have nothing to lose and everything to gain in everyday life until we reach forever. We must connect with His Presence inside of us. We must find the cloud of His Presence. We must enter His Presence and learn to live there!!!
