2 Corinthians 4:18


So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.



Another irony is that the physical (“temporal”) “things,” that “are seen” now, appear to be permanent, but in fact the spiritual (“eternal”) “things,” that we cannot see, are permanent.

What we can see now is only temporary. The present, momentary, visible things of life, paled for the apostle as he considered the future, eternal, invisible things on ahead. These things included his fullness of joy, his completed salvation, and his heavenly inheritance. By keeping these unseen realities in view, Paul could avoid discouragement when the troubles he saw tempted him to feel discouraged. No man need fear the years, for they bring him nearer, not to death, but to God.

No matter what hardships, mistakes or mishaps that can occur in life God allows us to Look up when Life has got us down. Remember: Success is never final… Failure is never fatal… But with God on your side it will be courage that will count.
