As The Stars For Ever!

By admin On October 14th, 2016

It is so common for we humans to be focused on this little life. But when we do this, it only magnifies the little trials we encounter.

.

Listen… 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day.
4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory;
4:18 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.  2nd Corinthians

.

This above passage puts our troubles in their proper perspective. In this light of eternity, this little life is nothing!

.

Just think about it! God is going to bring us into an everlasting Promised Land in which we will never suffer any longer!

.

Listen again… 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God.
21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.  Revelation

.

In this above passage, it is revealed that all the suffering and sorrow of this life will be forever banished in the world to come!

.

And so, in light of this, it behooves us to take our eyes off of this life and get focused on the things of Heaven!

.

Listen once more… 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory;
4:18 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.  Hebrews

.

Here again, the Lord is encouraging us to get our eyes off the things of this life, and keep our focus ever upward!
