Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
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… – 2 Cor 4:8-9
Jesus never promised life with Him would be easy; but He did promise it would be worth it. No matter what comes our way, we press forward knowing we cannot be defeated. Jesus is victorious – He defeated death, and conquered the grave – and He lives in you!
You might face pressure in life; but you cannot be crushed. You might be confused at times; but God will never leave you in despair, unsure of what to do next. You may have to deal with suffering; but God will never forget you. You may fall; but every stumble is an invitation to get back up on your feet, stronger and wiser than ever.
Whatever you are going through: keep going! The same Holy Spirit who got Jesus to the Cross lives in you. You will not – you cannot – be defeated.
Father, thank You for making me undefeatable! I know Jesus already overcame every obstacle I could ever face. Thank You for filling me with Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ name!
