Spiritual Warfare: 'Look Past Your Troubles to See Eternal Glory'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, March 30, 2022

We have small troubles for a while now, but they are helping us gain an eternal glory that is much greater than the troubles. We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see. What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever.
— 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, forgive me for focusing on my troubles each day instead of staying focused on the goal: eternal life with You. Open my eyes to see the rewards for my faithfulness today. Use my life to help others do the same. Give all Christians a unified heart that causes others to see how much they need Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
