Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
(2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV)
Every day we face trials, and with the current state of world affairs it just gets worse. We struggle with our finances, jobs, families, health, etc. How do we survive in this expensive, unstable and painful world? Sadly, some people resort to vice; whether it is drugs, alcohol, gambling, adultery or some other destructive distraction or sin. Others become despondent and detached. No one has to sink into the depths, it is a choice. You can choose to deal with your problems the temporal (worldly) way, or you can choose to hand your troubles over to Jesus Christ and live for the Glory you will receive in His Kingdom. Everything the eye can see is temporal; everything is decaying and will at some point cease to exist. Yet, if we place our hope in God and trust in His promise that if we accept His Son as our Savior we will spend Eternity in Heaven (which we cannot see). Once you begin to look at life beyond what your physical eyes can see and recognize what your heart sees, you will have peace. It is a choice. I don’t know about you, but I choose to focus on what God has in store for me rather than what He must do to prepare me for it.
Prayer: Father in Heaven, Please increase my Faith and give me strength to face the tribulations each day will bring. Fill my heart with wisdom and prepare me for that day when I will be with you where you are. Amen
