For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
1 Corinthians 13:12, NKJV
In the greatest essay on love ever written, the Apostle Paul describes the fleeting nature of worldly knowledge. In contrast to the love that never fails, much of what we know on earth is destined to vanish as a poor reflection of reality.
In 1972, Johnny Nash sang, “I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way.” One day in heaven, our eyes will be opened, the fog will be lifted, and we will see things as they are for the very first time.
If there are shadows in your life today and you are weary of the cloudy confusion, please remember that God’s unfolding plan will make much more sense one day when you see things as He does now—the way they truly are.
