I was thinking on this several days later, and thinking how great it would be if the Lord gave us ultraviolet vision on the tough days. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the exact path we should take when we're confused, or hurting, or struggling to make the right decisions?
Why do you think that is? Why do you think He doesn't lay it all out, nice and neat, for us? I think it's because He knows that if He did so---if He showed us the runway lights in a literal way---we wouldn't seek His face or get in the Word as we should.
We would get spiritually lazy. And slothfulness and idleness leads to nothing good, and certainly will not allow us to serve the Lord as we should.
