Those of us who have been on a flight through a storm know the anxiety this produces. The turbulent, bumpy ride of this sort would make anyone nervous. But then, as the pilot flies the plane above the storm we find peace. The sun, previously hidden from the storm, still shines brightly and beautifully above the storm. It can be like that for us in turmoil when all we see is the storm...but the sun is still there even when we cannot see it.
This is also true for us spiritually. We had no hope, but what we find is that the Son has always been there, so that now, through the obedience of the One, many will be made righteous. Jesus made the way for us to be reconciled to God. Now, if we will receive that gift, we have a glorious and abundant future in heaven awaiting us; a place, as it were, above the clouds of this earth and all the trials and temptations that bring us so much turmoil.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Holy Word.
