Not Crushed

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the; surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves,
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed;
Perplexed, but not despairing;
Persecuted, but not forsaken;
Struck down, but not destroyed;
Always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-10

In our weakness, He is made strong.  Don’t despair when circumstances are hard, but throw yourself upon the cross and see God bring about a victory.  Walk with you heads up when situations are difficult; Satan wants to claim the victory, but we are more than conquerors! 

Clifton Jansky wanted nothing less than to be a country western star and to sing in Nashville.  He poured himself into his music and his career for years.  Then one day his dreams were dashed as he went outside to find that his trailer had been emptied of all of his equipment.  He had no money to go on.  His wife left him.  He was in despair.  Someone invited him to a Bible study and Clifton asked Jesus to be in control of his life.   God has used Clifton in a mighty way ministering to people and in places that he would never have been able to if god had not opened the doors.  Now he is glad that he has not sung in Nashville.  You may know Clifton Jansky as the writer of “Amarillo by Morning”.  He wrote it and recorded it and it went nowhere until George Strait picked it up and ran with it.  But God…

How is God going to use your present situations?  Walk with God, purge your life of any sin, trust in the Lord with all your heart, and wait expectantly for God to work.
