2Corinthians 4:17(NLT)—For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will forever!
We have a tendency to make “mountains out of molehills.” When we are surrounded in our troubles, it is hard to see anything else. Let’s see our troubles as opportunities! Our faith should not diminish or let troubles disillusion us. Troubles remind us of Christ’s suffering for us. Our problems are not even close to what He suffered for us. We realize how brief this life can be if we were in a dangerous situation and how much we need Christ in our lives, if we don’t already. This is a good time to prove that our faith in God is real. When others see how we handle disaster or whatever we are going through. Problems give God the opportunity to demonstrate His power. Our limitations show us that we need Jesus in our lives and will prove that there is a God. He could heal, or calm down a person when they prayed, and He gives hope to the hopeless. There is so much that He can do in any situation. It is up to us to go to Him first by prayer then He will send the right people to help and comfort. Jesus’ victory over death makes us, the saved, victorious, also. This is why it is so imperative to become a believer, as it will save your life.
