Paul asked himself a question, " why do we stand in jeopardy every hour ?" (1 Corinthians (15:30). .In 2Corinthians 11:22-33 he chronicled some of his struggles for the love of Christ, many of which could have killed him. Had it all been worth it?
In Paul's mind, the matter was settled. Trading things that will soon come to an end for the honour that will last forever is a good investment. In the resurrection, a life that has been lived on behalf of Christ and others is the beginning of an eternity we will never forget !" Thank you for the courage we can have from you, to make and live by choices that show the difference, the Love of Jesus makes in our lives, and the strength not to trade away Eternal values for convenience and comfort. Now is the time to invest in eternity ". Our limited ability to see the awesome details of things in the physical world reminds us that our ability to see and understand what's happening in the spiritual realm is equally limited. God is at work all around us doing things more wonderful than we can imagine. But our spiritual vision is limited and we cannot see them. The prophet Elisha, however, actually got to see the supernatural work that God was doing. God also opened the eyes of his fearful colleague so he too could see the heavenly army sent to fight on their behalf ( 2Kings 6:17).
Fear makes us feel weak and helpless and causes us to think we are alone in the world. But God has assured us that His Spirit in us is greater than any worldly power (1John 4:4),
Whenever we become discouraged by evil we can see, we need to think instead about the good work God is doing we cannot see .---- Eyes of faith see God at work in EVERYTHING!
