Some days things don’t look good. All I have to do is listen to the news to know that. Bad news at every turn. That is the way of the world.
God has a goal that has nothing to do with that bad news. We don’t lose heart when we are listening to Him. It doesn’t matter what is going on around us. Trouble brings His mighty and awesome outcomes.
We see a reality, in Him, that others don’t know exists. We have our gaze fixed on Him. Today’s trouble is no comparison to His love which goes on like Him, forever.
There is no end to it. Like the “energizer bunny” but only real. We are fixed on what is not seen, the eternal God and our Father. We are fixed on God’s Goal.
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, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 TNIV Bible
