We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17=18 TPT
It seems when there is a problem in our lives, it consumes our thoughts and sucks our hopes and dreams out of us as if a tornado had passed over us. Beloved, it’s only temporary. Don’t spend so much time focused on the problem, instead, keep your eyes on Jesus who has all the answers to every problem.
Whenever I run into something that seems impassable or impossible, I think to myself, ‘This is such a small thing to He who created the entire universe. He’s so much bigger than any problem I can or cannot see and because He’s my Father, He will show me the way around it or through it. I trust Him! Even though I can’t see what’s ahead, You do and I’m right behind You.’
After I remind myself of who God is, I begin to praise Him for all He’s ever done for me. ‘Father, thank You for saving me and setting me free from all sin. I was bound for hell, but you set me on the right path. Thank You for the blood of Jesus. That blood didn’t just deliver me from sin, it healed me of all disease, took away the smell of death, gave me the power and authority over all the power of the enemy so that nothing would by any means hurt me. Thanks for knowing all the plans You have for me and leading me down the right path at the right time. There is nothing too hard for You.’
We may not understand our path, but if our purpose is wrapped up in Him and we trust that He directs our steps, than whatever obstacles are found, we have confidence He knew they were there. Stop studying & analysing the obstacle and begin looking to Him to show you the way out. It may not make sense, it usually doesn’t, but obedience will place you in position to overcome & set you up for blessing.
