2 Corinthians 4:17-18
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Though the weight you are carrying today may seem very heavy and nearly unmovable, the Apostle Paul describes our affliction as “light”. You may feel that the battle you are facing today is anything but light! The Lord understands that feeling, but thankfully the verse does not stop there.
The next phrase reminds us that though we are afflicted, it is “but for a moment”. Our battle is temporary! Not only is it temporary, but it is also promised to work “for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory”.
The load we carry in our daily lives cannot compare to the glory that it will bring Him in eternity. The circumstances we see around us are temporary, but thanks be to God that those things that He provides for us that we cannot see are eternal!
Be encouraged today that not matter what you are facing, it is “but for a moment”… our time is running short, and our Lord will soon be coming for us in the air!
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
