Nothing is ever as it first appears. That is why it is important to lift up your eyes and look beyond your current misfortune. As you peer into your future, you’ll see that something exciting is being produced both in you and around you. Break-through always follows a season of oppression. The resurrection followed the crucifixion. Promotion is birthed out of hardship. Correct your focus to see the full picture.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 — For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
