Blinded by the Light 8 Answers to Everything - The Truth

As Christians we seek to live our lives according to the word of God. When we search the scriptures we find that there are some topics on which the Bible is very clear and some on which we can make decisions based on Biblical principles. However, we also find that on some topics the Bible is either unclear or totally silent.

The same is true of direct spiritual guidance and answers to prayer. Sometimes we know with startling clarity, sometimes we are guessing, and sometimes there are no answers at all. And often, guidance and understanding are hardest to find when we need them most. These are difficult issues which we all have to face.

For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when perfection comes, the imperfect dsappears... Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then shall I know fully, even as I am fully known. (1 Cor.13:9,10,12)

The truth is that God is sovereign, and does not reveal all of his plan to us.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isa.55:8-9)
