Perspective

Learning to be content, learning to be still, and learning to lean are all difficult for me. I wonder why I get so easily discouraged sometimes, and then, I remember – the enemy of my faith is more subtle than any other foe. However, as I was listening to a Tony Evan’s sermon once, I heard him say this, “God’s perspective changes the way you look at things.” God will use the mess to create beauty. He made us out of dirt didn’t He? Rahab, a prostitute. David, an adulterer. Saul, a murderer. Peter, a liar. All called out from the muck of sinful attitudes and lives to be used mightily of God. Let the Word put things in the right perspective. As His child, we are washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. (I Corinthians 6:11) Jesus redeems, His blood cleanses from all unrighteousness. Enough said. When our dreams are centered in His will, they can never be too grand because it is the Father’s good pleasure to give His children the kingdom. It is when we are not looking at things from His perspective that desires become inundated with the world’s expectations and become distorted. We are more than conquerors through Christ, and when we seek to make Him foremost in our lives, nothing is impossible with Him. Nothing. Today we can rest in the great and capable hands of the Father – learning, and leaning, content in the stillness
