Encouragement: You Will Overcome

Encouragement: You will overcome

If you are feeling weak and discouraged because of the challenges you are facing, I would like to encourage you and remind you that We have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the excellence of power may be of God and not of us(2 Corinthians 4:7)


I have this treasure in an earthen vessel so that the excellence of power may be of God and not of me. (Adapted 2 Corinthians 4:7)

This means that if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, inside you there is a treasure from God which gives you His power.

To accept Jesus, you have to Say with your mouth that 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins, God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)


How to workout your salvation

Now that you have this treasure in your earthen vessel, you are able to exhibit God's excellent power. 

With God's power you are able to face and overcome all challenges because With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)

It is important to note that the Bible verses that follow We have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the excellence of power may be of God and not of us (2 Corinthians 4:7) are
We are hard pressed on every side and yet not crushed. 
We are perplexed but not in despair. 
We are persecuted but not forsaken.
We are struck down but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

So even if the clay pot is hard pressed on every side, it is not crushed because of the treasure that it contains. This treasure from God gives it an excellent power that enables it to remain uncrushed even if it is pressed from every side.  

Even if the clay pot is perplexed, it is not desperate because of the treasure that it contains. 

So even if the clay pot is persecuted, it is not forsaken because of the treasure that it contains. 

So even if the clay pot is struck down, it is not destroyed because of the treasure that it contains. 

Therefore believe that you will overcome not because of your own abilities but because of the treasure that you have within you that enables you to manifest God's excellent power. 
I may be hard pressed on  every side but I am not crushed. I may be perplexed but I am not desperate. I may be persecuted, but I am not forsaken. I may be struck down but I am not destroyed. (Adapted 2 Corinthians 4:8)

You can therefore use the Bible verses in 2 Corinthians 4 as Christian affirmations to encourage yourself by saying: 

I may be hard pressed on every side but I am not crushed because I have this treasure in me that gives me God's excellent power. 

I may be perplexed but I am not desperate because I have this treasure in me that gives me God's excellent power. 

I may be persecuted but I am not forsaken because I have this treasure in me that gives me God's excellent power. 

I may be struck down but I am not destroyed because I have this treasure in me that gives me God's excellent power.
