Today, God truly spoke to my heart, my soul and my spirit. We are to live eternally every minute of every day. No matter what our situations are…good or bad…we are to have our Lord as our focus. When we allow ourselves to truly view all things through the lens of eternity, the troubles of today are not as devastating as they seem.
2 Corinthians 4.16-18
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 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.
The last scripture above really clicked for me today. The Lord orchestrated a series of situations throughout last couple of days, climaxing with our pastor’s sermon today, to show me that His glory and His will are and should be the main focus of our lives…no matter what the circumstances.
The problem is…with the waves of life crashing around us, it is hard to stand firm in His hand without His help. We must stay rooted in Him daily by praying, getting in His word and letting go of our troubles and letting Him have them. Then, we have to trust Him, as we trust the light is still shining behind the clouds on a stormy day. Faith in Action!
My heart is heavy but my soul is at peace…All is well with my soul because my Lord Jesus Christ is my eternity! And with that NO one of NOthing can knock me down.
