8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed (2 Corinthians 4:8-9, ESV)
Have you ever felt trapped, like in a box and nowhere to turn? Paul evidently felt like that when he wrote this verse. But notice his response to those feelings. Though everything seemed to be going against him, he was still able to realize that it wasn’t as bad as it seemed. He remained positive, knowing who was on his side in difficult times. When stuck in those traps, turn to the Lord and know that He is working things out on your behalf.
Prayer: Lord, every moment is service to you is a victory.
