Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Are We Downhearted?

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV) 
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Father this passage of Scripture reminds me of the chorus by Robert Harkness:

Are we downhearted? No! No! No!
Are we downhearted? No! No! No!
Troubles may come and troubles may go,
We trust in Jesus, come weal or woe,
Are we downhearted? No! No! No!

Father thank you for giving us an attitude, through the Holy Spirit, that enables us to deal with our present troubles in light of our glorious future. As the Scriptures remind us: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"-- 10 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit......"  1 Cor.  2:9-10 

In the name of Jesus we pray, our preset help and glorious future. Amen.
