God-Powered Obedience

2 Corinthians 4:1-10

Life can be overwhelming. When Paul talks about being pressed and crushed, we understand that feeling. The weight of pressure from the outside of ourselves can keep us oppressed with fear.  I remember a moment in my basement when I was sick of obeying God’s plan. I had a plan that I yell-prayed at God because my plan had to be easier than what this obedience was costing me.  I heard God say to me, “So your testimony to your sons is that when life gets tough, you run away?” I looked up at my basement ceiling and shouted, “No sir!”

Our faith walk is not about the trouble we face. No matter what dragons try to slay us, we are Christians and we walk with the living God. Any power we receive is from the Lord, and any strength we have can be reflected back into the eyes of our Master. My testimony is not about the trouble I have overcome but it is about the God who sustained me. He not only sustained my walk but fuels me to fly into God’s waves of grace.
