Now all we can see of God is like a cloudy picture in a mirror. Later we will see him face to face. We don't know everything, but then we will, just as God completely understands us.
1 Corinthians 13:12
This is a verse that is so often overshadowed by the verse that follows it. That one is of course the verse about "faith, hope, and love." But seeing God now like a cloudy picture in a mirror is certainly important as well!
I know that God is real and is on His throne in Heaven. There is just too much "evidence" of God in the world and even universe around us to logically exclude God from the picture! Everything we see around us "screams" about the Creator. Look at the sky on a clear night and you will see the thin edge of Eternity, or look at a tiny flower in your yard and you will be confronted with the beauty of God's mind! But our picture of God on this earth is a cloudy one. There are so many questions about God that the Bible does not answer. But this verse promises that the answers will come when we are face to face with God in Heaven!
Here is a most amazing promise! Now we don't know everything, but later those who are followers of Jesus will know everything!
I think the saying was on a "bumper sticker" on a car and it says it well. "Those who think they know everything really annoy those of us who do!" I don't suppose we will be annoyed in Heaven, but later when you see Jesus face to face, you will know everything!
"Lord Jesus, I don't know everything now, but I know You and You, Jesus are everything I need! May You be praised forever! Amen."
