As America braces itself for one of the worst storms in its history, let me ask you, are you facing a difficulty or trial that seems like it may last for a long time? Today’s verse reminds us that our trials are really only momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles don’t last long at all! As you stand strong in faith during times of adversity, you are building faith and achieving eternal glory.
The Bible tells us that God is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the One who writes faith on your heart, and then develops it to completion on the inside of you. He is building strength in you; He is depositing joy in you, and He is empowering you to make it through.
Today, I encourage you that what you are facing is only temporary. Victory is on the way, and it’s closer than you think! Keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping and keep confessing His Word, because He is faithful, and He will complete what He’s started in you!
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” (2 Corinthians 4:17, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for working Your eternal glory in me. Father, I cast my cares on You today, knowing that my storms, trials and troubles are temporary. God, thank You for Your eternal blessings on my life today, and for leading me into victory, in Jesus’ name! Amen.
