The past few days have brought sleepless nights…either due to pain or health issues…but between you and me, I feel that Satan’s on a rampage…attempting to take me down and put me out of commission with God.
I’ll tell you…the mornings can be difficult…trying to get out of bed, with pain and a tired body; but one thing God has taught me to do…and that is to not focus on what I see before me; but rather what I can’t see, which becomes true faith. This kind of faith keeps me moving forward and the unseen moments before me, only allow me to anticipate God’s next move.
In 2 Corinthians 4:18, we read… “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.” This verse has truly been of great inspiration to me because one thing it’s telling me to do; is to not look at what I see before me…because even though the problem is trying to relay a defeated message to me…I now know that my situation is only temporary…something that will soon pass away…and when we can reassure ourselves of this; then hope springs forth within us.
We must remember that the eternal, unseen moments that await us; are going to far outweigh these temporary moments we’re experiencing at this time. When we can truly fix our minds on the eternal, rather than the temporal; that is when we will be able to have a different outlook, on what we are facing at this present time.
