Manna For Today: Tuesday, September 6, 2016
II Corinthians 4:16-18 – Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Each day we are encumbered with a myriad of issues vying for our attention. Some of these issues come with stress, uncertainty and can be overwhelming at times. As you go through the day today embrace the words of Paul to us; “do not lose heart.” God is mindful of you! He has placed in our ordinary lives treasures of riches and wellbeing that will help us to rise above our circumstances.
Be encouraged today, my friend, as our God is using our “light affliction” to work for us in every detail of our lives. See yourself on the other side of your struggles right now. See victory in your life as you look beyond the things that you currently see to the things that are unseen; look through the eyes of faith. Your victory is in Jesus Christ!
Find a way to encourage someone today and encourage yourself in the Lord!
Peace and blessings!
