I was reading through my email this morning and came across and email that said this, “You mistakenly apply a sense of permanence to your current circumstances. But, I tell you honestly that you are always in a state of transition. Nothing in your physical, natural existence is immutable. Embrace change. Allow change to be an avenue of spiritual growth and blessing, says the Lord. Only things of the Spirit are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 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.”
Can I tell you that is me? I believe further that it represents a lot of us. So many times, we look at where we are, what we are doing, or the circumstances that we are in and begin to believe that this is where we will stay. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many times, if not all, those times are just times of traveling through, not staking a claim of residence. What we see as permanent, God sees as passing.
Things that are of the “Spirit” realm are eternal. The things that we see are temporary. We are constantly moving and changing. We would be wise to embrace these things and take them within the stride. Understanding, that as we walk through these things we have the opportunity to grow in our spiritual maturity.
So, we wake up each new morning know that his mercies are new. His love is limitless, and his grace knows no end. We think on what things are pure and honest and of a good report. We press toward to mark. We trust in our Father.
