Perspective - 

Isn’t it amazing that when you lose your perspective on God or His Word, how clearly you can see everything negative in your life!  Without keeping your perspective on God’s Word,  our circumstances look hazy, our family looks unfamiliar, our finances seem non-existant, our over-all outlook on life is dim.  So how could something like that happen?

We can easily lose our perspective when “life” happens and we get consumed by our outward circumstances.  We get busy being busy.  We see how deep the water is and forget about walking on it!  Work demands our attention, our family deserves more time.  Church activities become burdensome and we feel the “time to make the donuts” syndrome.  We wake up counting the hours before it’s bedtime again.  Be alert – that sounds like signs of depression! (An enemy tactic for sure)!

So what do we need? More rest? More money? More time? More responsibility?  Nothing wrong with those things.  However, I am finding “More Perspective” – seeing Jesus clearly is what makes the difference.  Spending time at the feet of Jesus, in His arms – face to face gaining His perspective.  Seeing everything through His Eyes only!   In Isaiah 41:17-20, we are reminded that the Lord hears us, we are not forsaken, and that He will create open rivers in desolate places.  Basically, with clearer perspective from God…we can see His Hand in our lives…even in the wilderness.  That’s the hard part sometimes but should encourage us to press on!

If you ever find yourself in the desert or a wilderness season…don’t lose your perspective – or clear view of Jesus.  Take the time – make the time to climb up in your Daddy’s lap and get His perspective!   He definitly sees you and will guide you through and eventually out with His Right Hand!

CONNECT & REFLECT: Don’t be afraid…He is the Alpha and Omega and everything you need in between!

Isaiah 41:13 For I the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you ‘Fear not, I will help you.’  NKJV
