For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17
Define light and momentary. Over the course of the past week, we’ve sat across from couples whose troubles included multiple miscarriages, home robbery, income shortfall, unemployment, betrayal, panic attacks, cancer, and more. One look into the eyes of these folks will tell you that their troubles look, sound, smell, taste, and feel anything but light and momentary. No. Their trials are painful and heavy and chronic.
In the face of present pain, eternal glory can seem so very, very far away.
But, when all is said and shared, we stand and position ourselves in a circle.
His Bride. Her hands extended and grasped.
And She prays for that 6th sense called FAITH.
NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. Hebrews 11:1 Amplified
Prayer: the collective strain of our hearts to see the unseen…to hear the inaudible…to touch the invisible…
Prayer: the exercising of our Supernatural 6th sense; turning our pain to purpose…making our burdens bearable…transforming the chronic to curable.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
