Hard Pressed

August 3, 2011

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

Lord Jesus in the hard times help me to remember, when I am weak You are strong. Help me to rely on, lean on and trust in You, both in and out of hard pressed times. Help me to find joy in knowing that when things are hard for me, Your goodness will always shine through. For even the darkness is not dark to You!

After I prayed the above prayer, I looked up the phrase Even the darkness is not dark to You from Ps 139:12.

The word study gives the sense that there is NO darkness dark enough to hide you from the Lord’s sight or reach. This brought a smile to my face. 🙂

But through the verse before the Lord really touched my heart with the joy only He can bring!

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,” -Ps 139:11.

Another word for overwhelm here is crush! It’s as if the Lord told me not to worry about the overwhelming darkness – there is no circumstance dark enough to crush me or hide me from the Lord’s sight or hand ….

Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. -Ps 139:10

This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him.-Ps 91:2 NLT
