As the calendar year turns to 2020, we should all have perfect vision now, right?
Seems like the only near-perfect vision I have these days is hindsight vision concerning this, that, and the other. I wish I had said this better, wish I hadn’t said that, and wish I had done the other better. Don’t you sometimes wish the world would slow down a little bit, permitting things to come more in focus, allowing for better, further controlled decisions?
Control is an illusion. We don’t have it—never will. The way to perfect vision is connecting to the one who sees all perfectly and is truly in control.
We will fail to see here. We will stubbornly, blindly fumble at times. Reminds me of a news story I saw yesterday concerning how injuries have skyrocketed from folks running into objects while peering down at their smart devices as they walk. Vision is best when we follow His lead, walk in his steps and keep our eyes on Him—not the distractions and illusions of this world.
Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.”John 9:39
We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! I Corinthians 13:12
