They are saying hindsight is 20/20. That implies that once you look again you possibly can see issues extra clearly. Generally that’s true. Different instances, our reminiscence is skewed by our feelings or our notion of how issues occurred.
The purpose is, none of us can see precisely what lies forward in our lives. We will assume, however we can not see with 100% certainty as a result of we stay within the second, actually. That’s the nature of our temporal existence.
So, when Jacob had his well-known “ladder” dream, it wasn’t till he awoke that he realized he had had an encounter with God. It made him gasp to assume the Almighty Creator had really paid consideration to him personally. Him! Such a factor was unprecedented on the time.
I get that. There have been instances I acknowledged God transferring in my life, however solely after the very fact. It made me drop to my knees. After all, being born after Jesus’ dying on the cross, I notice Jesus has bridged the hole between earth and heaven, and since I consider that, the Holy Spirit guides me. However a couple of instances, God has touched my state of affairs in an unexpected approach. Me! Regardless of my shortcomings and imperfections. I might solely react the identical as Jacob — humbled.
I’m not particular. God is transferring in your life as effectively. Open your coronary heart to his presence, even whether it is after the very fact. His love is wonderful. Bear in mind, he’s there and he cares…all the time.
Lord, thanks for the instances you’ve gotten damaged by means of into my life to indicate me you care and are there. Your love for me is past my comprehension, however I’m so grateful for it. It helps me notice there’s nothing that I’ll undergo that you simply don’t already find out about. And that brings me consolation. Amen.
Assume again to methods God has been at work in your life, and thank him for his fixed, caring presence as you undergo your numerous duties in the present day.
