Resting in Him

April 15, 2021

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (KJV)

16 "For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18 "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."

It seems to me that there lies before us this threat of a whole lot of our family and friends leaving us behind as death snatches away our loved ones from us. As Christians we have ahope within us, not a hope like the world has who struggle with uncertainty, but a blessed assurance.

"Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine

Heir of salvation, purchase of God

Born of His spirit, washed in His blood

"Perfect submission, all is at rest

I in my Savior, am happy and blessed

Watching and waiting, looking above

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love,

Oh oh

"This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long

This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long

"oh oh oh oh

Oh, what a Savior, wonderful Jesus"

Father, in those moments when we face death's door, though it may be bittersweet, and even though we may be separated from what our eyes see naturally, we as believers see into a realm that is more real than the one we live in now. This one temporal, but Yours is eternal. Thank You for giving us times of refreshing in You. In Jesus's name we pray, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
