We all get slammed by circumstances that catch us totally off guard and turn our lives upside down don’t we? Suddenly we’re struggling trying to find a way out of the quagmire yet often feel we’re only digging in deeper.
Encouragingly though, God offers to bring light into that darkness and clarity into the fog.
Jesus promised, “Many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”*
See, God sent his Spirit, after Jesus ascended to Heaven, to open up to us his secrets. And that same Spirit unleashes the power of God in our lives.
So what possible challenge could we face that’s beyond that?
Now, he may not answer always in the way we ask. But he promises to answer in his perfect love.
We can hear and sense God’s leading. And he’ll unlock the mysteries of living effectively in a relationship with him.
Pretty astounding promises when you think about it.
So why don’t we see and hear like this more often?
Maybe the question really should be, why don’t we stop more often long enough to look and listen?
*Matthew 13: 17 (NIV)
