When I feel low, its usually because I have taken my eyes off of God.
When God is in His proper place, and I acknowledge how big, strong, mighty my God is, I can’t help but look up to Him.
Focusing on the problem makes it block out my view of God. It doesn’t mean God is not in the picture.
I was at a training course, where the teacher shared a part of someone else’s story. A young man was crying out to God in a drug trip to reveal Himself. All the man saw was a tiny distraction, which led him down a tormented path for years.
When he finally went for healing and freedom, he asked God to reveal where He had been in the room at that exact moment.
God did. He completely filled the room.
We can miss the bigger picture and how big our God is (as far as our finite minds can grasp an infinite God) when we narrow our focus.
When we limit our vision to what we think we should see, instead of seeing whatever God wants us to see.
Himself, reigning over all, no matter what we see going on around us.
We serve the one and only God, who is seated on His throne:
the Creator of all we can see on our earth, in our universe, and beyond.
the Savior of all people, who has never and will never stop reaching out his arms to them, us.
the Healer of all brokenness and wounds within us.
the Provider of all good gifts
the Guide who shares all wisdom, knowledge and discernment to all who seek and ask
the King who reigns forever and ever
and so much more!!!
In light of who He is, we need to remember He is greater than all we will come across:
The enemy who is being and will be defeated.
Those who hate and harm us.
Painful situations caused by sin & selfishness.
All disease, mental illness & sickness.
Losses and grief.
Today, I am reminded anew to lift my eyes up, and keep them focused on God, not how I may be feeling.
I will look up.
I will proclaim God reigns over everything happening in my life.
I will choose to put my hope in the One who gave so much for me.
Its never too late to look up.
