Trials are a preview of the blessings God is planning. Spiritual warfare is the overture of the grand miracle that will soon play out. Focusing ahead and trusting God’s plan gives hope to grab hold to. God never changes. His plans are divine. He will see to it all obstacles are moved to accomplish His purpose.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
