Life In A Fog
1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV) “For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
Do you ever feel like your life is lived in a fog? Has your vision for the future been impaired or somehow veiled? Are you looking at a fuzzy world, as if there is still sleep in your eyes?
The Word of God tells us that while we work out our salvation on earth, we will only see part of the whole picture God has designed for us. This includes what we know and understand of the heavenly realm. Right now we have only a poor idea of what heaven will be like, not to mention our Creator. We can’t comprehend the full riches and glory that will be revealed to us upon entering our eternal home.
God holds many mysteries in His hand. He reveals only portions of them to us and then requires us to walk with Him by faith. In fact, our futures are dictated by faith, yes …..BLIND faith. In our eyes, our path may often appear to be fuzzy, but in the eyes of God it is always perfectly clear in which direction He must take us. He knows who we will become, where our ministries will lie, and to which valley, desert, or mountaintop He must lead us.
If your trial has you confused or wondering why things have turned out as they have, then pray. God will always talk to His children. He may not give you the answers to all of your questions (for your own good), but He will send you encouragement and words of hope and love.
“God has wisely kept us in the dark concerning future events and reserved for himself the knowledge of them, that he may train us up in a dependence upon himself and a continued readiness for every event. “ Matthew Henry
