Fears and uncertainties can dominate your thinking.
When we only view things from our limited scope, from our own limited understanding- our viewpoint is inaccurate.
God’s ways are not man’s ways.
God’s thoughts are not man’s thoughts.
God uses the foolish to confound the wise.
That’s why we need to see things through the lens of God’s Word.
That’s why we need the Holy Spirit to lead us, reveal and teach us, to direct us through His truth.
God’s #perspective is far more valuable.
Mans perspective is limited and skewed, but God is #omniscient –
He sees from an eternal perspective of past, present and future.
He knew us before we were even formed.
He knows the plans He has for us-every mistake, every misstep, every ‘bend’ and ‘detour’ in the roadtrip of our lives-
God doesn’t get alarmed and is never caught by surprise when we venture in the ‘wrong’ direction-
Because He saw the beginning from the end.
You see- each of us was born a mess.
God’s job is to #transform our mess into our messages, to enhance our testimonies, to be His Witnesses on the earth.
He is The #Creator, we are His created.
He is the #Master, we are His masterpiece.
A beautiful ceramic vase started out as a lump of dirty, filthy clay.
Yet the #Potter sees the hidden beauty within in it- because He knows it’s potential-
The Potter patiently sits besides His wheel, guiding the process of transformation from clay to vase-satisfied with each step because He sees the beauty all along the way.
ALL of us have sinned, and fall short of God’s glory. That’s why we need a Savior-to save us.
Each of our dirty, lumpy mess of clay looks different. Our ‘sins’ have different names and depths- but that doesn’t phase God one bit.
He loves us all. ALL of us- no exceptions.
Can you ‘see’ His perspective a bit clearer?
Pray this with me:
“Father God, help me to see others through YOUR perspective and not my own. Help me not to judge others ability to be transformed by you while they are still in the transformation process. Help us to trust in You, and to pray for others in our path, and to love them as we love ourselves. In Jesus Name, amen.”
