“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians chapter 4:16 (KJV)

Stop looking at what you are seeing and begin to see as God sees. The scripture says in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

What you are going through is not going to last forever. It is a stepping stone to great and mighty things. When Jesus was baptized and was full of the Holy Spirit, the scriptures said He was led of the Spirit into the wilderness. The Holy Spirit led Him into the wilderness to go and prepare Him for ministry. In the book of Luke chapter 4:14, the scriptures said: “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.” (Luke 4:14 KJV).

He returned in the power of the Spirit after going through the wilderness. He returned in the power of the spirit into Galilee. And there went a fame of Him throughout all the region roundabout. God made Jesus’ fame to be noised abroad only after the wilderness experience. Everyone knew about him. People will hear your testimonies. They will hear of God’s goodness in your life. They will hear of God’s mercies upon your life.

Beloved, we do not look at the things we see, but at the things, we do not see. For whatever we see is temporary and what we do not see is eternal.
God has done eternal work in your life. It will certainly manifest. And there is nothing the devil can do about it.
