May 28, 2020
Today’s devotion is based on 2 Corinthians 4:17,18. “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.”
So far, 2020 doesn’t seem to be a great year for a lot of us. There may be some real problems you are working through, some sadness that you feel. God wants you to find hope in the certainty that these troubles are only momentary. He wants you to give it an eternal perspective. Your problems are real, but God reminds you that from a perspective of eternity, they are light and momentary compared to your time with Jesus, which will be perfect and forever. Fix your eyes on that eternity. Feel better today.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help me to focus not on my earthly troubles but on the eternity I will have with you in the future. In Jesus’ saving name, I pray. Amen
