Where do you think your residence will be in a thousand years? How about your job? What do you think the world will look like then? It doesn’t take a lot to see that this world is deteriorating. This is all the more reason to grab onto God’s word. The current pressures that you are feeling will pass. Your pain will end. Great opportunities will cease, but God’s nature and character will remain forever. So remember the things that will last, and you will be able to put your current situation in its proper place.
