“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Hebrews 13:5

Early this morning a thick fog  settled down over our town.   As I look out the window to the backyard I can’t see but a few feet beyond the line of trees at the edge of the yard.  But, I don’t have to see what is there in order to know what lies beyond the fog.   A large field, just past that a road, and a house just  the other side of the road.  I know it’s there even though I can’t see it right this minute.

Faith is like that.  I can’t see the future, but I do know that God is there and in charge of everything.  I’ve seen Him in the past.  So even if momentarily I feel as if I can’t see Him, I know that when the fog that temporarily blocks my vision dissipates, I will see Him.  He is still there,  He hasn’t moved.  He won’t move.  He will always be there.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9
