I want to talk to you today about Trouble Is Temporary. We all face difficulties that don't look like they'll ever change, seems like the more we pray the worse it gets. We don't see any sign of things improving. It's easy to live discouraged and accept that it's not meant to be. But Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, "Our present troubles are small and won't last very long. These troubles will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever".
What you're up against may look permanent, seems like it's going to take years to get well, years to get out of debt, years to meet the right person - don't be fooled by what you see. God is saying "The trouble is only temporary". It's not going to last very long.
