Hindsight

Description

Seek to daily stretch your awareness of God’s glorious presence.

Sometimes we just don’t see God coming. We don’t realize that He desires to meet with us, that He wants to be a part of every aspect of our lives. We’ve put Him in a box instead, and imagined Him to be much smaller than He is. And when He comes close, we’re largely unaware.

Moses experienced the presence of God in some pretty spectacular ways. Once he asked God to show him His glory, but God warned Moses that what he asked was dangerous: “No one can see my face and live,” He said. Instead, He offered an indirect alternative. He would hide Moses in the cleft of a rock, and shield him with His hand. Then, when God had passed by, He would allow Moses to see His back. Moses saw God, but only in hindsight.

Aren’t we like that? We may say we want to see God, but we couldn’t survive His direct approach. But when He has passed by, when we’ve had a brush with glory, we see Him in hindsight. We say, “Oh yes, that was the hand of God. He was with me there. He touched my life, and I didn’t even realize it at the time.”

The apostle Paul said “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I have also been fully known.” One day, our sight will improve... but until then, our view is constrained. Seek to daily stretch your awareness of God’s glorious presence.

MEMORY VERSE

Then I will take my hand away and you shall see my back, but my face shall not be seen (Exodus 33:23).
