Our Father Knows Best

1 Corinthians 13:12, NIV: Now we see but a poor 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.
This lifetime here, at times, seems immense. So much so, that it makes it so easy to forget the eternity that follows. We are, unfortunately, creatures of the moment, it seems. Whatever makes me feel good now, or meets my immediate need, or brings me satisfaction today becomes the proverbial squeaky wheel that gets the grease. And we--we are so often foolish and frail, falling easily; giving ear to Satanís lies; forsaking Godís truth and His will for momentary satisfaction. And in that moment we turn from God to take hold of our desires today, we can so easily destroy our tomorrows. We know He knows whatís best for us. We know that if only we will trust Him with today, He will take us into our tomorrows and bless us along the way. He will enable us not to stumble today in the wake of poor and selfish choices, but help us instead to choose rightly. And He will show us in the days to come that, though we could not see it, He had it all worked out all along.
