It is much like my conversion to Christianity. I had a Bible, I had read the Bible but I never saw the truth that was there until the Holy Spirit pointed it out to me. All along the truth of who Jesus was/is was not hidden. It was right there in front of me, but I could not see it. The Lord in his mercy pointed it out to me and I am forever grateful and amazed.
Now I entertain the idea that as I read scripture there are truths right in front of me that are not illuminated to me, but I am trusting the Lord to give me the light and the illumination. Sometimes we don't have the understanding we want, but I believe He provides the understanding we need. There is a lot in this world I don't understand, but I know there is not one thing the Lord doesn't "get". So I will look to him and pray for understanding about so many things which baffle me.
Trust Him. It sounds so easy....it is not the snap it appears to be because we are naturally skeptical. But I do know I can trust Him with my past, with my future here and with my eternity. Remembering He loved me enough to show me the arrow .....to point me to the truth makes me understand how trustworthy He is and I must remind myself of that often.
If you don't know Him as Lord, ask Him to show you the arrow .....to show you the truth. I trust He will do just that. Seek and you shall find, ask and it shall be given to you.
