Seeming Contradictions

Jul 10, 2022

Today's Scripture

2 Corinthians 4:7, NKJV
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Today's Word

Today's Scripture talks about how we have treasure "in earthen vessels." Yet all of us have imperfections and weaknesses within our clay pot--seeming contradictions. There's something that's not being removed or changed that could easily irritate us and cause us to live frustrated. What is it for you? Perhaps you say, "If I didn't have this back pain or this weight problem, I would be happy." It might be a coworker who gets on your nerves or a family member who's not doing right. For many people, it's the hurts from going through a bad childhood, then a divorce.

Whatever it is, God is saying to you, "My grace is sufficient. Quit fighting it. Quit letting that problem steal your joy because it hasn't turned around yet. When I am ready to remove it, I will, and the excellence of My grace will be seen in you; but until then, tap into My grace. Trust Me. Come back to the place of peace and keep moving forward."

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You have placed this treasure in my earthen vessel. Thank You that even when I don't understand why something isn't changing, Your grace is sufficient for me. I'm going to keep trusting You and not let the seeming contradictions keep me from my destiny. In Jesus' Name, Amen
