When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

1 Corinthians 13:12

Going through my devotional for the day I stumbled upon this sweet verse in Corinthians. Just before the famous 1 Corinthians 13:13, “Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love.”

It’s amazing to be reminded that God slowly reveals His plan to us so that we constantly need to put our faith in Him. If we could see far enough into the future to settle our worries, so many of us would stop relying on God. Instead, God wants us to focus on today.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

If we rest in the peace that God provides about the future (instead of on our own understanding/lack thereof) we’ll be able to focus more on the tasks at hand. We’ll be free to spend time consulting God on his views about our day-to-day tasks.

God is so cool.
