Have you ever looked through a pinhole in a curtain or in a piece of paper? A pinhole is very tiny; but yet, you can see through it. That is the way we see God right now, through a pinhole, darkly; but someday, we shall see Him face to face.”For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; put then shall I know even as also I am known.” (I Corinthians 13:12). As the Israelite’s had to cover Moses’ face with a veil because his face was too bright to look upon, so it is now with God. He is too bright to look upon. We only see the hinder part of His glory. God said to Moses, “Thou canst not see my face…” (Exodus 33:20). But He said, “And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.” (Exodus 33:22-23). Right now we only see the hinder part of God’s glory as though looking through a pinhole. Pinholes are: love shown to others, caring for those in distress, helping those in need, encouraging those that are down, and holding up those that are weak. We all need to see through the pinholes; but, right now my pinholes are clogged. Lord, please open them.
Thought for Today: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (I Corinthians 13:13).
