So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight 2 Corinthians 5:6-7
We walk with an invisible God on an invisible road to an invisible destination! What a totally insane thing it is to live by faith – and yet – God delights in exactly that. The apostle Peter puts this crazy walk of faith in different words,
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory 1 Peter 1:8
Has your walk of faith today begun more like a trudge of faith? We all have days like that – and yet – God has chosen those times for us to have opportunity to know Him more. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find a mysterious letter written from the future as happened in the film “The Lake House”? If you haven’t seen the film it has an odd twist of two people from different times who have never met yet through the letter box they come to know each other and fall in love. That is in some ways like our own mysterious love letter “The Bible”!
We would love to know more details –and yet- by God’s design we are given His word. It is our staircase to heaven, our river that runs from the throne room of God. The word of God is a light that shines in our dark place and it is our shelter from the storm. God’s word is a treasure hidden in a field and it is our pearl of greatest price. The more we don’t know or understand about how to live in the rat race and turmoil of our 2017 world, the more precious the riches of God’s eternal world become. I don’t understand this plan God has chosen and yes some days I am not sure how much I like not knowing and seeing in a more palpable way the things of heaven. -And yet- by faith I am walking with my invisible God on His invisible road to His invisible destination!
