In II Corinthians 4:7 Paul speaks “of the glorious gospel” and its power to enlighten, save, heal, help, deliver, rescue and so much more. God having commanded light to shine out of darkness, “who has shone in our hearts giving light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” II Corinthians 4:6
Even though God uses us we are reminded that even with all the answers to prayer and the mountains that by faith we have moved, the miracles of healing that we have witnessed and participated in, we are earthen vessels. As such, we are subject to all that goes along with it to help us remember who we are and whose we are.
Consider this scripture:
”We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed, we are perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken, cast down but not destroyed- always bearing about in the body, the death of our Lord Jesus, that the life of our Lord Jesus may be manifested in us.” II Corinthian 4:8.
Lest we forget that we always need Jesus, there is always something in our humanity to constantly remind us that we need Him! It is all about Him! The main thing is about Him! He is the main thing! Without Him nothing else matters! Nothing would exist without Him!
“The excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.” II Corinthians 4:7
Sometimes when we experience great victories and mighty answers to prayer, we forget that God is the only One worthy to be praised. These scriptures are constant reminders of God’s promise to us.
