Take Heart!

Today's reading: 2 Corinthians 4:7-18

If you're struggling with discouragement or feeling a little beaten down today, you can take heart with the Paul's message and the picture he paints for us in 2 Corinthians 4:7-18. While we will experience affliction of all different sorts and kinds in the present, with God as our strength, we can and will persevere! Did you notice these key phrases?

  • But not crushed
  • But not driven to despair
  • But not forsaken
  • But not destroyed
God is all powerful, He loves you and He is absolutely good. So let's take heart knowing that God has us in the palm of His hand and that we will spend eternity with Him. Thank you, God!

How were you encouraged by this passage? Was there a specific verse or phrase that caused your heart to rejoice, and why? Tami
