Today, this day that I am walking in Christ and living and abiding in Him, God saw. This day, in which He is my Peace, my joy and my Hope, God saw.
That day, years ago, when I was defeated and discouraged and thought I could no longer go on, God saw ahead to this day. On that day filled with confusion, hopelessness and despair, God saw in the future to this day. That day, when as a seed I gave up to be dead and buried in the dark ground, God saw this day when His resurrection life would bring me up into new life.
He saw this day in those days; I dared to trust Him in that day, but still I could not see this day. In that dark day, I could not see the beauty and light of this day. But He did. Faith believes, even though it does not see. I am so thankful He saw this day. Grateful that He did not give me up to hopelessness and despair. To think that all that time, He knew what the final outcome would be. He was not panicking in that day; He was not filled with worry and fear. Love, mercy and grace all saw this day.
And what of today? In times of discouragement, of failure and weakness in my life and in other’s lives, I remember. I remember that He saw. He knew. He worked in that day to bring about this day. I remember that He is not fighting sin and failures, He is using them to bring about this day.
And so, in this day, which will one day become that day, I rest. I rest in His love and Sovereignty for He sees in the future a day I can never imagine, a day of His Glory.
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor has it entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9
