Hitting the Nail on the Head...

I received a devotional this morning that hit the nail the head!!!!

Momentary Troubles

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."
(2 Corinthians 4:17, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Are you facing a difficulty or trial that seems like it’s been lasting a long time? Today’s verse tells us that our trials are really only momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles don’t last long at all! As you stand strong in faith during times of adversity, you are building faith and achieving eternal glory.

If you are in the middle of tough times today, look to God. The Bible says that He is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the One who writes faith on your heart and then develops it to completion on the inside of you. He is building strength in you, He is depositing joy in you, and He is empowering you to make it through.
Today, be encouraged because what you are facing is only temporary. Victory is on the way, and it’s closer than you think! Keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping, and keep confessing His Word because He is faithful, and He will complete what He’s started in you!


Heavenly Father, thank You for working Your eternal glory in me. I cast my cares on You today, knowing that my trials and troubles are temporary. Thank You for Your eternal blessing on my life today and for leading me into victory. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Thank you for this - I needed this today more than you will ever know. Life is tough sometimes and we don't understand what is happening but God has a plan and He always comletes it.

very nice devotional that can be applied to so many aspects of life! unfortunately life does give us so many different types of struggles, albeit relationships, money, love, or children, and hopefully we can all lean on God to get us thru it and grow from each thing!
