Trials No More
“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.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (ESV)
There is no comparing our earthly trials with the heavenly reward awaiting those who long for Christ’s return. The burden of affliction is not easy for you, but it will not last forever. The scars of sorrow may weigh heavy on your heart, but it will soon be forgotten. Jesus is coming for His church, for you who believe, and until then you can find comfort in longing for the glories of Heaven.
Sometimes it is good to pause and remind ourselves that our trials only temporary and they can not subdue us forever. Each day we age, and each day we are drawing closer to the time when Jesus returns and trials will be no more.
Let’s pray today for those struggling with trials, that they may find comfort in their coming Lord.
