His Encouragement: week #22

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

 

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the excellence of the power may be
of God and not of us.

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed;
we are perplexed, but not in despair;

persecuted, but not forsaken;
struck down, but not destroyed

II Corinthians 4:7-9

 

God calls us “His Treasure” because when He lives in us and we allow him to work in our lives, other’s see Him. It isn’t by our power, it’s by God’s power.

Difficulties and hardships will come, but God promises that He will be with us. We will never be alone. And no matter what happens, we won’t be destroyed. Because in the end, Jesus will return to take us home to live with Him forever!

Though trials come, God is with us!

 

Now it is your turn!

What Bible verse is blessing you today?
