What if you could get a glimpse of the hidden?

I don't know how to explain it--and I probably won't do justice to what's been on my mind today. But I wonder what it would be like to have a quick glimpse of what's going on in the heavenly realm. Like right now. Almost as if I could read a narrative of what's going on, just like the first chapter of the book of Job.

Were I to get such a glimpse, something tells me that I would realize the intensity of the battle going on, the attacks that are underway--and if not for my hiding place in my mighty God, I think it would scare the crap out of me (can I say "crap" on here?). I would see what's at stake. I would see just how worth it obedience is. And things would make a little more sense than they do in the earthly realm right now.

And I would see the glory and might and love of my Defender.

Oh, to have a glimpse.


  1. i have wondered this. and know it would be too much to take in. maybe my eyes are covered from that reality for a reason beyond my understanding.

    and so i ask God to reveal his mystery to me as he sees fit. to unwrap it, bit by bit. and as he does, in tiny pieces, i am overwhelmed at his majesty, his awesomeness, his glory.

  2. So funny you wrote that it would be too much to take in...This morning I had to look away from the sun streaming in my car window--it was too brilliant to even look at. And I considered that I was getting a picture of what it would be like to even TRY to look at His glory--too brilliant to take in!
