“They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them.”
The Author, Madeleine L’Engle said, “That’s the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious they’ve been all along.” She’s got a lot right in that statement and our business practices prove that true too. We spend years and years thinking and working on something and then all of a sudden someone releases a product or service that had we thought of it earlier, it would have worked. Sometimes, you need technology to make things happen like Ridesharing Services (Uber/Lyft) but other things you have to scratch your head and wonder why it took so long (think what TV could have done had they released a full season of TV on a VCR or DVD that we bought or rented alongside the weekly episode releases – they would have had a brand new revenue stream that would have far surpassed their loss in eyeballs for advertising). What we are working on today might be the obvious of tomorrow? So, it is on us to move it forward, now.
Isn’t our spiritual journey like what L’Engle said? If we look back at where we have come from and where God delivered over and over even when our doubts and lack of faith wondered how He could, we can see how obvious He is for all of us. He is right here with us right now, just wanting to make Himself as obvious as we will allow Him to be.
