God’s timing and perspective is a hard thing for me sometimes. It is so funny…you think I would understand it fully, because my husband and I had to wait so long for our son. There are still times when I think “Really God, do you understand?” He does understand, and He knows what is best for everyone. HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST! Such a hard statement, but so true.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible.
But with God everything is possible.”
Matthew 19:26 NLT
I was reading my devotional this morning by Christine Caine called “Unashamed,” and she said something amazing. “If there’s one key to watching the walls in your life fall, to moving forward in freedom, to seeing the promises of God at work, then this is it: You must learn to believe the truth of God’s Word over the facts of circumstances. You have to look to God, not at everything around you. Only then can you see what’s going on from His perspective. We have to see that wall torn down even before it is. We have to believe that God is faithful to do what He has promised.”
We always want to put our human perspective on things because that’s all we see. That’s when we need to stop and seek God’s truth in the Bible, and see what His promises are. Also we need to ask God to help us see His perspective, and give us peace in the middle of the crazy situations we have in our heads.
Today, whatever is going on…stop, and write down the situation you are going through. Ask God to help you, ask a friend to pray with you. Bringing our situations out into God’s light helps us see God in the middle of it.
