Eternal Realities

Live near to God, and so all things will appear to you little in comparison with eternal realities.” from Robert Murray M’Cheyne

This verse reminds me of I Cor 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Also consider the verse showing the confidence of God in completing what He begun in us.   Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

So when we pray, remember God is in this eternal realm, and sees things from this perspective.
