Are you consumed with your current trouble/situation? Does the future seem bleak? Have you lost faith? Have you given up looking for the light at the end of the tunnel? Does life seem unfair? Are you comparing your present failures to the successes of others?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, chances are, your perspective has become too narrow and you’ve been beating your head against your present circumstance(s).
So how do you regain a proper perspective? Take a step…BACK! Often times, when facing an obstacle, we focus our energy and attention on trying to overcome it. When we do this we magnify our problem and push (BIG) God out of the picture. Instead, why don’t we pause and take a step back? When we do this, God is magnified and problems begin to look small compared to how big God is!
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9 NLT
Let’s take a step back. Let’s worship and magnify Him as we go through this! Let’s gain His perspective and trust Him to lead us through!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
