That said, today's reading from Isaiah got me excited. In 45:2 God says, "I will go before you and make the rough places smooth." This got me thinking. If God is going before me, I have to seek Him in order to end up in the right place. Further, He will make the rough places smooth. Too often we forget that God is omnipresent, which means He exists apart from time. He is with us right now and He is already in the future. (A mind-blowing reality!) If I want to have a vision from God I must continually seek Him. Since He has gone out before me, He is working within my vision right now. Better yet, He is preparing it for me (and me for it). And finally, He is making the rough places smooth. Too cool.
