I Corinthians 13:12 (NLT) “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we shall see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me completely.”
Life is filled with so many questions and puzzling situations. From the time we are born, we are asking questions. This is how we learn. We ask, we receive an answer, then we are more knowledgeable than before, however, the older we grow, the more questions that go unanswered. Now, we can come up with many alternative answers to ease our questioning minds, but we have to admit, many of those don’t settle the uneasiness of our hearts, in that, we know the answer is still beyond our reach.
Many of us have said on more than one occasion, “One day I’m going to sit down with Jesus and ask Him all of my questions.” I personally believe that when we arrive in heaven, we won’t need to ask any questions, we will suddenly know the answers. I John 3:2 (ESV) “Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.” We will have a perfect body and a perfect mind. We will be like him!
Knowing these things helps me deal with life’s questions. I know that one day, all my questions will have answers and all the puzzling dilemmas of this life will be over. I can rest as a child, trusting that my Father God will take care of me, knowing that even in death, life is not over; I will be embarking on a new beginning that will have no end.
