This is the second message in a new sermon series entitled ‘Breaking the Chains’, this message is based on Scripture found in 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. It is easy to see the discouragement in so many faces around us, especially in the turbulent days we are living in. Our God gives us clear instructions to help us overcome this atmosphere of despair. With His help we must learn to see beyond the depressing circumstances and diligently listen to His voice of truth. In addition let us always be mindful of the glory that awaits every true believer! May the Hope the Lord puts in our hearts help us to overcome.
