So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:18 NIV
The key to walking in the Spirit is to focus on what is unseen, the eternal promises of God. If our focus is on this temporary world, we will struggle in our flesh, trying to survive in our own strength.
Nothing in this world is permanent. Nothing in this world is going to save us from this world. Nothing in this world will go with us when we leave.
In this trying time, His peace is but a breath away from each of us. It is within our grasp, not dependent on circumstances. For His peace to reign, we must look beyond the storm, shifting our focus once and for all onto our assured eternal destiny.
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Col 3:1-4 NAS
What Jesus tells us is true. His promises are guaranteed. We lose nothing and gain everything by fully trusting in our Savior with all of our heart. There is no one we can trust more.
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid. John 14:27 BSB
Trying to hold on and control things in our own strength doesn’t work. If you are tired of being tired, afraid, and worried, try it God’s way. Nothing else will work. Commit to focusing on the eternal in your thoughts from this day forward, wholeheartedly embracing His promises like never before. Do it one day at a time until you learn to walk boldly in confident agreement with the Holy Spirit. He rewards us with His peace in the storm when our faith is steadfast in His promises.
