Seeing to Tomorrow

For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

I enjoy gazing up at a cloudless blue sky. The sky is a beautiful part of our great Creator’s masterpiece, given for us to enjoy. Imagine how much pilots must love the view. They use several aeronautical terms to describe a perfect sky for flying, but my favorite is, “You can see to tomorrow.”

“Seeing to tomorrow” is beyond our view. Sometimes we even struggle to see or understand what life is throwing at us today. The Bible tells us, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14).

But our limited visibility is not cause for despair. Just the opposite. We trust in the God who sees all of our tomorrows perfectly—and who knows what we need as we face the challenges ahead. The apostle Paul knew this. That’s why Paul encourages us with hopeful words, “We walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7).

When we trust God with our day as well as our unseen tomorrows, we don’t need to worry about anything life throws at us. We walk with Him and He knows what is ahead; He is strong enough and wise enough to handle it. 

Lord, I know I can trust You for today and tomorrow because You are kind, good, loving, wise, and powerful. Teach me not to worry. Amen.

I cried as I read this today, I got little sleep last night as I wrestled with the unknown in my children’s life and wanting the very best in everything for them. I’m certain you are thinking, what parent doesn’t. As I have said many times before, God never ceases to amaze me and He’s always speaking right to my heart, right to the area I’m struggling with, big or small. I wouldn’t want to imagine my life without Him as the captain. God sees the beginning to the end, it’s my responsibility to trust Him not only in my own life but in my children’s lives. I must pray, fast, read the word and be obedient and allow Him to do the rest. Even in times when I would hope and pray for a different outcome, His thoughts are not my thoughts, neither are my ways His ways. For we walk by faith, not by sight. Allow your faith to be bigger than your fears and watch what God will do.

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
