It’s A Beautiful Struggle 

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 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. (2 Corinthians 4:7-9, KJV)

Paul and the Apostles suffered many things, but they were not moved by the things that they suffered. They remained focus on their eternal estate. They learned that they can do all things through Jesus Christ that strengthens them. They were content in all things. Many of us are experiencing hardships and difficulties, but we can rely on God’s strength and peace to sustain us.

Our walk with God should not be any harder than what it is. We don’t have to struggle within the struggle. We should submit ourselves whole heartedly to God. By submitting to Him is what will bring about peace and prosperity in our lives. What makes the struggle beautiful is that we have abundant life from within that gives us peace that surpasses all understanding. God is glorified when we hold to that which is good in our struggles.
