Thrown Down, But Not Defeated

So many have been abused and threatened, but God has a calling on our lives and nothing will stop His plan for us… unless we allow it. Though we may be down, we will overcome as we hold onto God and go deeper in His Presence.

Thrown down,
but not defeated.
Worn down,
but not depleted.
Threatened,
but yet unfinished.
Rested,
and now replenished.
Strengthened,
with God’s Essence.
Empowered,
with God’s Presence.

“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

Dear Lord, You have heard the threats and the abuses that persist against Your children. Protect us from evil. Strengthen us to continue and empower us to overcome as we walk into the fullness of Your Calling upon our lives. Help us to go deeper in an intimate relationship with You so we will do just as You lead, empowered by Your Spirit… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
