All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 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 4:15-18
In Malachi 3:6, God says: “I am the Lord, the self existent one, the one from whom all things have their existence. I change not, and that is why sons of Jacob are not consumed and will not be destroyed.” Run to the stronghold. Lean on what is solid, strong and reliable. Temporal things are unreliable, remember heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God remains forever. Visible things are temporal so also are our light afflictions. By looking at things which are eternal, we are strengthened to overcome the temporal.
