Powerful reminder and perspective
The early Christians had their own battles, their own unique circumstances that easily could discourage them. However, Paul was a master of delivering perspective in the midst of the pain.
So, as we start yet another week with more and more restrictions on our movements, remember our God is still at work.
While we don’t have control of what’s happening on the outside, make sure you’re giving Him full control of you on the inside!!
“So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18 MSG)
