This post is from a devotional book I wrote a while back but I posted it today because it is so much like the battles many of us are going through today. It is a reminder that when our spiritual walk seems more like a spiritual trudge we need to remember who we are trudging with! 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
If your walk of faith feels like you are wading through mud, remember that God has chosen those times for us to have opportunity to know Him better. 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 their letters 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 but by God’s design we are given His word. It is our staircase to heaven. 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 the more precious the riches of God’s eternal word become. I don’t understand this plan God has chosen yet by faith I am walking with my invisible God on His invisible road to His invisible destination!
