EVEN WHEN MY EYES CANT SEE, HE IS THERE FOR ME

Total cloud cover.
The stratus clouds are covering our view.
This makes me think of how often our life’s circumstances may seem to cloud our expectations. How they may cause us to doubt how life will turn out.
This is when it is necessary to rely on what we already know.
We know the road, the street, the path to where we are.
In the same way, we know how God has been faithful in the past. How he has shown us his mercy and grace and directed our steps.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.
We know that,
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Regardless of the scene our eyes may see…
Regardless of the limited view, we can be secure in the one who sustsins us even in thise days we may feel uncertain in.
I’m reminded that behind those many clouds is still a sun that is shining. It is still able to, provide what we need to exist in this life.
In the same way, regardless of the limitations and/or poor projections that may be given, Our Son of Righteousness is still i in the business of being our Light. He is still on the throne. He still is the one who holds all things in His hands.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
The Lord is able to shine in to the most difficult and dark circumstances of our lives and bring us hope. He is the one who holds us in the hollow of his hand. Nothing can separate us from His love.
He says this to us today…
He gives us this guarantee!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Oh, if we seek him, no matter how much cloud cover there may be, we will find Him.
If we seek Him we will gain a sweet reward.
Each day brings its own troubles and cares. But we have Christ as our go to. He is the Way. In Him we have true Security.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:33 - 34
(Mateo 6:33 – 34)
We can come to Him and lay our burdens and find our rest.
Come to Me, all those toiling and being burdened, and I will give you rest. Mathew 11:28
You see, when our lives are in Christ. The day may seem gloomy. The sky may seem dark and uncertainty is often felt for a moment. In our humanity we may have moments of doubt. But when we rely on what we know of God; when we rely on His atributes.
Which are clear in His word…
He is faithful,
Merciful, His mercies are new every morning.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
(Lamentaciones 3:22 – 23)
He is our Heavenly Father that gives good gifts.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow. James 1:17
When we know whom we have believed in,
Our doubt is dissipated. Our eyes are opened and we can contemplete with clarity that, He is Good.
He is able to save.
And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”
He will surely not change. He is the same always. He does not move because of the cloud cover.
He offers forgiveness to those who have a contrite spirit and a humble heart. Those who turn to Him will not be turned away.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1:9
(1 San Juan 1:9)
Then, regardless of rhe issues of this life, the clouds that seem to cloud our vision, we can rest assured we have been made right with God and our lives are secure in Him.
We can know and understand, and echo these words…
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
We may face trials and tribulations. We may face some storms in those moments where our skies appear dark and stormy. But we can trust we are going to be kept in the day of trouble.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
II Corinthians 3:12-14, 16-18
(2 Corintios 3:12 -14).
What an amazing thing. We will be forever secure in the Son of righteousness. He shines in the midst of life’s storms. He remains when others abandon us. He sustsind us in the midst of the deep waters.
He lifts up our heads and changes our perspective from this earthly, limited view of life, to an eternal hope and an assurance of faith that rises above our current circumstances.
Oh, what a day! Cloudy perhaps…
But we can remember Who it is that is Behind the veil. I CAN SEE HIM.
Jesus Has Set Me Free.
I live in His Victory.
I am living in LIBERTY.
NO CLOUD COVER FRIGHTENS ME… I NEED NOT FEAR…
God is In Control, Still.
Behind that Cloudy Sky is that Bright and Morning Star.
He is Still Present With Us Always.
