2 Corinthians 4:16-18
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Do not lose heart. It is not a request it is a command. We cannot we must not lose heart. Even if it looks like doom on the outside, remember the outside is simply temporary. There is a bigger picture and the bigger picture is the might and power that rests on the inside of your heart. It is the man or woman Jesus is making you on the inside. It is the eternal focus that is being created in you on a daily basis. Today is temporary and the struggles we face will fade away. But the spiritual power created will last an eternity and the strength within your walk and displayed through your life will impact this world in a beautiful way. Today you will influence those around you. Today they will see that you love Jesus and that no storm or struggle deters you from that love, but instead you embrace the struggle of today with a love for Jesus that never waivers. Today you will show them how to really follow Jesus. Today you will disciple those around you. Today you will walk in a manner worthy of your calling. Why? Because you love Jesus and He has breathed inside you the Holy Spirit. You are connected to the Most High and you want to live and live the fullest most abundant life possible. Jesus loves you so much, He is at work in and through your life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The word of God prepares us and makes us complete and equipped for every good work. The cool thing is God prepared us to walk in these good works, He has prepared these opportunities for us so we can walk with strength and power. He prepared good works for you today. Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. He has prepared you for today, He has prepared several opportunities for you today, be excited and on the look out because you are going to handle them like a champion for Jesus. You are going to Walk with might and Talk with Power because Jesus Christ has prepared and established this day. Love Jesus today with everything you have.
