For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
It is tough sometimes when you see only a reflection of the future. It is tough to realize that when we look into the future, what we see is sometime transposed, sometimes out of focus like a mirror. But when we look through God’s perspective we can see truth, we can see through His light giving us proper perspective on the future.
I sometimes wish I could see the impact of a decision on the rest of my life. Something like choosing to marry someone will have a major impact while the choice of the color of a car may have little impact. Getting God’s perspective allows me to stop putting the same weight on even the simplest of decisions.
It is in the presence of God that we both wrestle with the future and can get a more accurate value of the weight a decision has in our lives. God might show us the impact of marrying someone if we ask while he might not show us the fun we would have choosing a car’s color, in part because you already know the impact of the car’s color upon your life.
Getting God’s perspective is worth the wrestling, it is worth the wait and it is worth the time an energy it takes to settle your self down enough to hear His Still Small Voice!
