Today’s daily devotion is based on 1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see 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.”
I wonder why God allows some things to happen in my life and the lives of the people I love. I know that God loves me, and I try to figure out his purposes, but I realize it’s always like looking into a fogged-up bathroom mirror. I can’t completely see the whole picture.
But that’s ok. I don’t need to see the whole picture. I know God sees it. And I know I don’t have to fear because through faith in Jesus, I have his forgiveness and righteousness. And because I have his forgiveness and righteousness, I will see him in heaven one day. There, I will have a much clearer picture of things. I will know everything I need to know to be perfectly at peace.
Please pray with me, Lord God, Heavenly Father, give me confidence in your love and protection in my life and the lives of my loved ones. Amen.
