Yesterday morning as I drove an hour and a half one-way to read the Bible Lesson with some people, the fog was so heavy I could barely see the entire trip. This had happened once before and I remembered praying so hard that I could almost hear God tell me to keep my eyes on the car ahead. That and trust in Him was all that I had needed. Then I remembered that at times I want to know how God is going to work things out ahead of time. Daily he guides me and that is all that is necessary.
2 Corinthians 4:18 reads “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” When I flip a switch, a light comes on and when I turn a key, the car starts. These are things I know , so shouldn’t I trust God in every situation?
While beginning my day, a couple of scenarios come into thought and I am reminded immediately that they are temporal since they are human, not spiritual. Spiritual qualities like Love, Truth, joy, peace, kindness, compassion are the real and eternal. Today, I will be happy for the things in my life right now! Philippians 4:4, 12 state “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!…I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”
Today, I refuse to wait until this happens or that happens but grasp this moment with joy and expectancy of Good!
Daily, the clutter in my heart and consciousness lessens when I realize the things I see with the human eye are fleeting and temporal, so I refuse to be fooled by appearances. Things that are invisible are eternal.
“Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
