“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” —2 Corinthians 4:16-18

His Ways are Higher

We’re not on this earth for applause, we’re not here for egos, we’re not here for pleasure, we’re not even here for our friends and family, we are here for God! If you are a Christ-follower, your every move is to be done for the glory of God—the One who has given you every breath you breathe.

Have you gone through a major change lately? Has something disrupted your comfort or plans? Draw near to the One who holds your future in His hands. He has a plan for you that is so much better than anything you could dream of or imagine. The God of the universe created you for a purpose and that is to bring glory to Him.

With this eternal perspective, we cannot lose heart!

“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.’” —Isaiah 55:8-9
