Troubles and trials are only temporary! We all go through them. In fact, this verse tells us they are momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles won’t last long at all! When you stand strong in faith during the difficult times, you are building faith in your life and also achieving eternal glory.
If you are in the middle of tough times today, look to God and ask Him for His help. Pray, and turn all of your cares and troubles over to Him today. The Bible says that He is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the one who writes faith on your heart and then develops it to completion on the inside of you. Your part is to open your heart and choose those words of faith and victory.
Remember, your words set the course for your life. If you are speaking positive words of victory and faith, then great things are coming soon. However, if you are speaking the problem all the time, the negative things that are happening, then it is going to be with you for a long time. It isn’t always easy to think positive when things aren’t going your way, but that is the answer to those problems and the fast way to get God’s attention.
As you remind yourself that your troubles are only momentary and declare your trust and hope in God, you will see His hand moving in your life. It won’t be long until you’re past those momentary troubles and experiencing His eternal glory!
