When you shoot at nothing you will hit it every time. Is this how you live your life? Do you ever set any goals? Things that you wish to accomplish in the future? If you set goals for yourself are they goals you have “spoken” with God about? Are they the goals He has, or the direction, He has set for your life? Once we begin to head towards those goals times can get tough but, if you keep your eyes on the end result and are focused on achieving them you will make it. In 2Cor. 4:18 when Paul says “do not look at the troubles” he doesn’t mean to ignore the matter so it will go away. He is telling us to keep our focus and know that we are the victors! The hard time is only temporary.
