The Promises of God:
"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory" (2 Corinthians 4:16, 17).
Notice it says "light" affliction - however, when we are afflicted that is not usually our perspective! LOOK at the outcome - from God's view point! Our afflictions work for us a "FAR MORE EXCEEDING and ETERNAL weight of glory!" Somehow this so easily escapes us! We want the glory and glory sounds good - but we don't want the affliction - guess what - the 2 come together - it's a package deal! Next time you are struggling with some "affliction" remember there's MORE to it than meets the eye - FAR MORE EXCEEDING and ETERNAL !!! This life is not the end result of our living! HALLELUJAH! We're on our way HOME! Let's choose to live as if we believe in ETERNITY!
