2 Corinthians 4:16-18 – 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 nit on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Don’t focus on your troubles here on earth. Whatever comes your way, nothing can take away the gift of eternity that God has in store for you. We so easily fixate our hearts and minds on what we can see – possessions, image, popularity, job, house, location – forgetting that what really matters are the things we can’t see – God, Heaven, joy, peace, love, eternity, grace and freedom.
Because of Jesus, we have those things we can’t see. We have God. We have our spot in Heaven. We have His joy, peace, love and grace. We have eternity already. He set us free over two thousand years ago.
We don’t need to bind ourselves to our earthly problems and desires. What troubles us here now, has nothing on us in Heaven one day. So let go of your worries, troubles and anxieties. Don’t lose heart now!
