“For this reason we do not lose heart: Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day. Our light affliction, which lasts but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 MEV
In light of a horrendous day of moving with a crew that was incredibly unprofessional, this is what Gid is saying to when I was about to lose heart and my mind…don’t lose heart!
Don’t lose heart. So many things can happen in this world that will cause you to lose heart. The opportunity to lose heart is real…but what we choose to do will enable us to be who we are destined to be. We were born for so much more than the present affliction or the present situation. We were born for great things! Our inward man is being renewed day by day in order to overcome what we see and what we feel. So don’t focus on the temporary, the junk that is right in front of you. This too shall pass! Focus on the eternal unseen God! He is the one that has a plan for you and for your life. Learn from affliction, learn from pain and allow the presence of God to equip you and allow your righteousness to shine!
Jesus today is a new day. Today I am not going to focus on the junk in front of me, but rather the treasure that lives inside of me. I choose to not lose heart and fix my eyes on JESUS!
