This week I have come to appreciate 2 Corinthians 4:7, which is "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not out of us." Do you know what this treasure is?
The past week has been rough for me because I felt very loaded with school work and personal items, and I felt like I was doing what will make me happy and satisfied. But by the end of the week, I felt very dry and tired inside. Somehow I couldn't feel happy at all. Then I read this verse and came to realize that I am but an earthen vessel, but there's a treasure inside of me, and that's our Lord Jesus! I was made to be a vessel, a container, to contain Him - our treasure!!
It makes me so happy when I see that the Lord is our treasure. When I am tired, He is my rest. When I am troubled, He is my calm. Even though I did not realize I needed comfort, He was also my comfort this past week. He makes me so satisfied.
