There is “a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, NIV)
Things come and go, as do the seasons. Life has its ups and downs, victories and valleys. Regardless of where we are in this moment, it is always the right to walk by faith, not by sight.
As we travel down life’s way, we face a real danger: difficult days and seasons of suffering sometimes cause us to take our eyes off the Lord.
Thus, we must remember…
“…since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” —Romans 5:1-5, NIV
