Seeking understanding of God’s processes in your life is an indicator of a healthy spiritual life. This understanding comes from the capability of using hindsight and insight.
Hindsight is not difficult to see – it’s 20/20. Hindsight is a very clear picture. The facts, evidence and truth will always rise to the top in hindsight. It’s especially wise to use hindsight as a leveraging tool. Hindsight is a great teacher, revealer and demonstrator. Looking upon and meditation on your history will teach us to be effective in HIS-story about us.
A proper understanding and meditation of hindsight will cause us to have a healthier insight. Hindsight is looking back; insight is looking in. And when we redeem our memories we gain propensity to acquire better insight.
Hindsight is the past; foresight is the future but insight is the present. Although our goal is to connect with our future, we will never be able to do so unless we recognize our present. It’s in our present that God speaks to us about our future. It’s in our present that God teaches us to make the proper adjustments to connect with our future.
Remember this, you will never actually connect with your future. Because when the future arrives it always converts into the present. Insight is recognition of that process. Hindsight is memory; insight is revelation.
