Illusions

by Norman P. Grubb

I believe God gives dark moments, and apparent clouds (II Cor. 12:7), so as to teach us that these things are an illusion and a mere outward appearance, and thus to teach us to live where we really are - with Christ joined to us within, Spirit with spirit. I believe the great lesson of life is with the outward eye to see and feel evil and dark and lonely appearances around us, but for us to learn not to believe in them (for we experience what we believe), but to transfer our faith to the Unchanging One with whom we are in union within. That is where we really live, right in the midst of outward darkness.

From Knight of Faith, Vol.I
