2 Corinthians 4:18 (The Message)
16-1 8So 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.
Don’t center your attention on what you can see in this natural, physical sense realm. Everything you see is temporal and subject to change. So put your faith in the unseen eternal realm. The things which are eternal are not subject to change.
God’s Word is eternal and contains 7,000 promises to cover any circumstance you’ll ever face. And, no matter what happens in this shifting, changing world you live in, those promises will forever be the same.
Lately the "seen" realm has had my attention, I'm sad to say. It's just that when you look around you and see the events of the day, it's so easy to do. I'm glad this verse reminded me where my attention needs to be. There is only one thing that will save the United States, yes and even the world, and that is for us to wake up and turn to God. No one man can save us now. Only God. So don't look to man, look to God. He's just ready and waiting for a conversation with you.
