When looking at the sheer weight of unseen glories to come, my troubles seem light by comparison; and when looking at the staggering length of eternity, my troubles seem fleeting by comparison.  It is only against the backdrop of a glorious eternity that my circumstances can be seen in such a manner; and the promise of this glorious eternity is part and parcel of the gospel itself.

2 Corinthians 4. “(16) Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. (17) For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, (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.”

Colossians 1: 5. “. . . the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel . . .

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace. (song by Helen Lemmel).

Are you in pain? Are your suffering? Has living became a burden? Then you are to focused on today and not on your future glory with God. Sound to simple? It’s not, we must trust in all the promises of a different future when we depend upon God for that future.
