862 Keeping Your Heart Part 5 - Ephesians 3:13• 5 min
Do you get discouraged by difficulties in the world? "So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory." Ephesians 3:13 ESV Do we let the troubles of others get us down? Sometimes I can become disappointed at what others have to go through in this broken world. I can get angry or discouraged at what people have to endure in this world. And if they have to endure that difficulty because of me, that makes it even worse. But Paul is encouraging the Ephesians. He was so good at thanking God for everything. And I'm not. But he encourages them to reassure them that he trusts the will of God and so should they. Where do we need to remember that God's will isn't being thwarted in our world. The enemy isn't winning. God is. Everything is going according to plan. If you have a problem with that idea, let's talk. Call me or email me. I'd love to talk. In the moment, I have difficulty with what I'm saying, but I want to believe in a God who is bigger than all the mess of this world. Paul wants that for us, too. So let's not lose heart. I hope these podcasts are a blessing to you. We're supported by people who want to share in the cost of what we do so others can live an integrated faith.
