“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.”
1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV
We do not always understand the reasons things happen the way they do, especially hard things like suffering. This morning I woke up to a REFLECTION of the moon on the window. It was so bright and real to me, I thought it WAS the moon. But when I changed my position in my chair, the REAL moon came into view which was even brighter and more glorious than the reflection had been.
In our life, we see things from our earthly viewpoint but God sees things from a heavenly vantage point. He sees things much differently than us and many times our knowledge of things is merely a poor reflection of the reality that we will understand fully someday from a different viewing position with Him in heaven.
