Seeing Above the Fog

The story is told of how how Mark Twain in his later years was riding a steam boat up the Mississippi when the boat entered a patch of dense fog. The ship’s captain, however, didn’t slow down which greatly angered Twain. He immediately marched up the stairs to rebuke the captain for his carelessness. But when he reached the upper level, he could see what the captain saw. Instead of being blinded by the fog, he could see clearly above it.*

Sometimes you’ll face tough and scary circumstances – Situations where you don’t know what to do or why it’s happening. It’s like a fog but we have a God who sees clearly, who loves you and can turn all things to your good. You can trust Him.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

For More:  Elisha is a great example of someone who looked beyond the situations he was facing to what God could do. Read and consider 2 Kings 4:38-6:23.
