But God gives us wisdom, His wisdom, much of which, I believe is hindsight that develops our foresight, though we cannot see or know the near future as it develops in front of us. William V. Pietsch gives us the picture of being on a ship in this regard as he wrote, ‘someone once compared God’s guidance to the experience of being on a boat in a broad expanse of water. By looking ahead it is difficult to tell where we are headed, but by looking back at the wake of the ship we get a sense of direction by seeing where we have been.’
