As I am reading through the “Choice Gleanings” daily there are many times I find just the right encouragement at the right time. As in every life of a true believer, many times there are things that we have to go through that help us to become more like the Lord Jesus Christ. I have found encouragement today and am thankful that the Lord uses things in our lives to change us! May our lives reflect the Lord Jesus Christ today then it did yesterday!
We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
2 Corinthians 4:7
Are we going through suffering and heartache? God has not forgotten us! Rather He has chosen us, to reveal His excellent power. God is well able to deliver us from our problems, but like Paul with a “thorn in the flesh,” He may want us to live wit hit for awhile. This will show to the world that His grace is sufficient for us and His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).
—by David Croudace
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater;
He sendeth more strength when the labours increase.
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace. — A. J. Flint
