Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. Psalm 116:5
Imagine you’re in a plane, ready for take-off on the runway. The pilot comes on the intercom and announces there’s a delay due to fog. You glance out your window. It looks so gloomy and dark. You wonder if the sun is shining.
The fog lifts enough for the control tower to give the green light, and the plane takes off. It’s still cloudy, but the plane starts climbing, climbing, climbing. Suddenly, the plane bursts through the clouds, and it is so gloriously bright that you have to blink your eyes. Now, you realize the sun has been there all the time.
That’s the way it is with Jehovah God, the Son of righteousness with healing in His wings (see Malachi 4:2-3). He is always loving, always giving. He is waiting for you to see Him now.
Invite the Holy Spirit to show you today the true condition of the sky—above the clouds. Open your heart to His presence and let Him speak to you about what is really there beyond the fog. Things are not always what they seem. And God has His hand upon you.
