Out of Sight, But Not Out of Mind

"Indeed seven years of great plenty will come throughout all the land of Egypt; but after them seven years of famine will arise, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt." (Genesis 41:29-30 NKJV)

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:17-18 NKJV)

It is entirely too easy to be overcome with the moment’s affliction, and forget the unseen—both the plentiful blessings which came before and the incredible joy to follow.

But we walk by faith, not sight. We remember the faithfulness our mighty God has demonstrated innumerable times in the past. We believe Jesus is our Mediator with our Father, and the Holy Spirit is our Counselor, Comforter and Keeper in the present. We confidently wait for the weight of glory, exceeding and eternal, lying in the not-so-distant future.

Holy Spirit, thank You for living in temporal flesh. Give us Your passion for the Son of God. Draw us to the Word and show us more of all we do not see.
