2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure [the reflection of the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ] in earthenware containers, in order that the super- excellence of the power might be from God as a source and not from us. (Wuest)
The power of God is His power that changes me from the inside out.
It’s not about making me stronger,
But allowing His strength to be in me.
It’s not about being more comfortable,
But allowing His comfort to be in me.
It’s not about producing more faith,
But living out of His faith in me.
It’s not about creating emotional balance
But living out of the peace He has given me.
My ears don’t create sound,
That would drive me crazy.
My eyes don’t produce sight,
I would never be able to rest.
I am not the source…
Never will be.
He is the only source…
Always will be.
2 Corinthians 1:9 But we ourselves have had the answer of death in ourselves and at this time still have that experience, in order that we should NOT BE TRUSTING IN OURSELVES BUT IN GOD who raises the dead; [emphasis mine]
