Faith Sees Through the Fog
It’s not often foggy in Placerville. The sign on old town Main Street reads, “Above the Fog, Below the Snow.” But occasionally we wake up to find ourselves covered in one or the other. This morning it was fog.
As I drove my son to his classes – up and down the many hills, we would emerge into sunshine at the tops, and then decline back into the fog. I realized how inconsistent fog was. Its density and level were unpredictable as I drove through it. It wasn’t darkness or light, or even something in between the two. It reminded me of doubt. It is illusive and changes form. You can push through it, but it causes you to question what is up ahead.
When we are faced with doubt, it is our faith that pushes through it. Faith in what we know is on the other side. As Christians, it is faith in the one who is leading us through the fog of doubt, reminding us of what is really there, even if at the present time we cannot see it.
Eventually the light of the sun breaks through the fog and its vapor disappears. Just like God’s presence in our lives, what was there all the time is revealed - in the light of who He is.
Corrie Ten Boom said, “Faith is like radar that sees through the fog.”
The bible says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb. 11:1)
Is your faith seeing through the fog?
