For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long…. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
We all face difficulties that don’t look like they’ll ever change. It may seem like the more we pray, the worse they get. There’s no sign of things improving. It’s easy to live discouraged and accept that it’s going to take years to get well, years to get out of debt, or years to meet the right person. But the apostle Paul tells us to not be fooled by what we see. We serve a supernatural God who is saying, “Receive this into your spirit. The trouble is only temporary. The problem will soon be over.” Soon you’re going to see your breakthrough. Soon you’re going to see freedom, promotion, problems suddenly resolve, dreams suddenly come to pass.
Now you have to get in agreement with God and have a soon mentality. As long as you think it’s going to take years, that’s going to stop God from working. When you have this soon mentality, you get up each morning with expectancy, knowing that this could be the day that God shows out in your life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that Your plans for me are to give me a future that lasts forever. Thank You that my present troubles are small and temporary and will soon be over. I believe that breakthroughs are coming and this could be the day that You show out. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
