To believe what you can not see
The Zugspitze, at 2,962 metres above sea level, is the highest peak in Germany. It lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the border between Germany and Austria. About 10 years ago, Juergen and I took some friends to see the Zugspitze. We stayed in a beautiful Hotel right at the foot of this Mountain. But the valley was covered in clouds the entire weekend. We didn't see the mountain. It was there...the biggest mountain in Germany. We could stand on it, but we couldn't see it. Clouds are funny like that! I thought back then about God's provision. It could be on it's way...or even there. But sometimes we are afraid because of the clouds. And this is a word for me today. God is big, and his provision is great. Even if I can not see it, I can stand on it! What are we going to believe in? The Mountain or the clouds?
