As we think of many missionaries and servants of the Lord who continue working in very difficult circumstances, even when death could be their next event, we must not forget them in prayer. Even some current situations around the world make us fear and doubt what the future may be. I am reminded of Hudson Taylor’s words:
“Soon we shall be in the midst of the battle [he wrote from the China Sea], but the Lord our God in the midst of us is mighty — so we will trust and not be afraid. “He will save.” He will save all the time and in everything.” (Howard Taylor, Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret, Moody Publishers, 2009, page 225).
“So, we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day be day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). Is that your perspective? “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” (4:17). The best way to endure difficult times is to have eternal vision. Then the things of this earth will become very temporary and small in comparison to eternal glory.
