Recognize reality for what it is, not for what you want it to be. Therefore, it is essential for a believer to look at life clearly and realistically.
Daily Devotional for June 4
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)
It recognizes reality for what it means, acknowledging both the joys and the challenges that come our way. It means embracing the present moment and finding contentment amid life’s circumstances. While it is natural to have dreams and aspirations, we must also be grounded in the reality of the present.
When we recognize reality for what it is, we free ourselves from unrealistic expectations and false perceptions. We understand that life is a journey with twists and turns, and we may encounter obstacles. But in the midst of it all, we can trust that God is with us, guiding and strengthening us.
