Are you facing a difficult trial at this time? Are you suffering an affliction? Are you being persecuted for walking in God's truth? Please don't despair. There is more happening behind the scenes than what you realize!

After telling the Corinthian believers about the troubles and persecutions he was facing, Paul states, "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" (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

When you are going through something, it seems endless, but God reminds us that in the light of eternity it is only transitory. He also reminds us that it is working for us a great reward in the eternal realm. In fact, He uses five adjectives to describe the glory that will be revealed in us. Count them--FAR, MORE, EXCEEDING, ETERNAL, WEIGHT OF GLORY!

The CEB translation says, "Our temporary minor problems are producing an ETERNAL STOCKPILE OF GLORY for us that is beyond all comparison."

The answer is: don't keep your mind fixed on your problem. Don't let it consume you. Instead, fix your gaze on the unseen, on the eternal, on what God is working in you. The difficulty you are going through is only temporary, but the work God is doing in you is eternal.

You are STOCKPILING for glory. You can rejoice!
