2 Corinthians 4: 7, But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. NKJV
I find this passage to be very intriguing. On one hand, Paul speaks to the frailty of our humanity and on the other he speaks to the power of God that each believer contains within their vessel. While we are weak in the natural, we have a power on the inside that can give us life to go on and overcome any obstacle.
Anyone can choose to live a very mundane life...where we accept whatever life throws at us and call it fate. However, Christians can choose to live a life that is powerful, victorious, and overcomes whatever life sends our way.
As a human, you can allow life to bully you around, but as a Christian you have the power and potential to face your giants and slay them. Life for the average believer should be anything but average (or normal). We have the same power that created the heavens and the earth abiding within us. So let me ask you a question. What created thing has more power than the power that abides in you... that it would be able to defeat you?
All you need in order to stir the power of God that is contained within your earthen vessel is "faith." Once faith comes in contact or agreement with the power of God within your life, all things will become possible. Do you want to live a mundane life, or do you want to live a supernatural life that doesn't roll over when Satan roars? Take a stand today, and let faith fill your heart and connect with the power source in your spirit. It will be nothing less than explosive.
