“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT
Hardships and difficulties are a natural part of our earthly existence. Frequently, unbelievers suggest that if God was so good, why does he allow trouble and pain? Jesus answers this in scripture, saying, “In this world, we will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” We live in a fallen world due to the impact of sin, but in addition to that, how can you appreciate the good times if there were no bad times that proceeded them?
Understandably, we all want to experience a peaceful, prosperous, and abundant life, but the road to achieving it goes right through the trouble. Difficult times aren’t present to destroy us; they’re one of God’s methods of preparing us to appreciate what is soon to come. Today don’t let your ”temporary trouble” convince you it’s here to stay. There is an old saying that says, “All good things must come to an end” well, I’d like to inform you, so does your season of trouble! #BeEncouraged #TemporaryTrouble
God Bless You and Have a Prosperous Day!
