For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. (Hebrews 13:14)
Some people love the place that they live in so much that they keep bragging about it. How about you? How much ever one may love it, as a believer one must remember the above verse. The places that we live in are our temporary homes. We are to look forward to the city that is to come.
There are others who have to live in different places because of financial problems or because of their jobs. Sometimes frequent shifting becomes a pain and people despair. For such people, if they are believer's, the above verse is a source of comfort because they will finally be staying at one place which they can finally call home.
And the places that we live in may not be the ideal ones as some would testify. Uncertainties loom large because of strife’s, conflicts, job insecurities, financial calamities and personal problems.
The Word of God exhorts us in this matter and I quote:
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. (2 Corinthians 4:17)
So how do we overcome in this matter?
It's best for us to take the advice that the Apostle Paul gave the Corinthian believer's:
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Like Abraham, let us look forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
