Driving in heavy fog is not a pleasant experience. It’s an eerie feeling only being able to see a few feet in front of you. Yet, if you know the road you are on you continue the path, because eventually you know you’re going to make it to your destination.
The fog begs us to be more cautious, to move at a slower pace, or even pull over for a while.
There may be circumstances in your life right now that are pulling the clouds down to the ground. Sickness, confusion, heartbreak, finances, they all contribute. You may be feeling fear or desperation in the fog surrounding you and it’s easy to want to give up and quit the journey, but remember, faith speaks that your promise is on the other side of the fog.
Keep going. You may be so close that you just need to press on a few more feet. You may be getting that answer, that phone call, that breakthrough tomorrow if you just keep going forward a little while longer!
Understand that when a cloud touches the ground, it’s not where it belongs. Its proper place is lifted in the sky and that’s what we must do when we’re surrounded by it—lift it up. In prayer and through faith give it up to God.
Fog is always temporary, it will lift, and things will become clear again. What you can trust in is a permanent God with unlimited power. Allow Him the opportunity to guide you through it. Allow God to lead you when you cannot see and when you feel like the fog will never yield.
Your promise is waiting, trust the process.
“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!” 1 Corinthians 13:12 (MSG)
