On a daily basis, it is fairly common to hear about or experience difficulties that often create discouragement in life.
During these times we find it tough to understand that these problems are temporary and that God has prepared something better for us.
We often lose sight of what is to come and only see what is presently before us. We fail to remember the words of Paul, when he said, “we look not 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 Co. 4:18).
Leading others through the difficulties of life is not an easy task, but the ability to provide assurance that “come-what-may” it really does get better than this. Keeping our focus on the eternal realm helps us remember there is something better we look forward to receiving.
Our God is great, worthy of our praise and trust.
“Let us press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:14).
