THE VERY THINGS that trouble you most—your weaknesses and wounds—are of greatest use to Me in helping others. By letting these humble, hurting parts of you be exposed, you bless others, My Light shining through you into their lives. Thus your weakness and woundedness, consecrated to Me, become treasures in My kingdom.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
[2 CORINTHIANS 4:6]
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
[2 CORINTHIANS 4:7– 9]

Before You Turn Out the Light
Receive My healing and then turn outward: Who can you minister to by revealing your wounds?
