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
Because we have been set upon by the Holy Spirit, we have a helper in times when most would cave to the pressures of life’s trials. As the devil launches his arrows, God is our shield. He gives us strength to stand in the face of affliction, He gives us a peace that defies logic, and He gives us hope for a glorious future.
