Jars of Clay

by | Jan 2, 2024 | Vital Life Application Devotions

“We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”—2 Corinthians 4:7

How easily each of us can become discouraged by the conditions we face. But the Bible describes how God can work through any situation. He can use circumstances to transform our lives and even produce masterpieces. We might feel pressed by troubles or perplexed. But, as Paul learned, these are conditions in which we should turn to God. He can shape us, refine us, teach us, and do amazing things through us. As we go through life’s challenges, we may realize we simply are “jars of clay,” but God can give us a “treasure.” In every situation, you can be confident that God is with you. Submit your life to Him. Let Him use circumstances to refine you. He can do amazing things through you.

Reflection Question: How do your daily habits point people to Jesus?
