Does life get a bit blurry when you are looking at it? Do you find yourself in some messy predicaments? Watch and consider whose lenses you’re looking through
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.” Isaiah 55:8, NLT
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil.” Proverbs 3:5-7, NLT
Whose lenses are you looking through? God’s or your own? Consider your vision, perspective and attitude on life. Is it short term, self-anchored, performance-driven, and conditional? Does it focus on possessions, circumstances, ego, pride, insecurity and fears? Whose vision and desires for your life are ultimately better…yours or God’s? God so wants what is best for us that He even coaches us not to trust or depend on our own thinking, our own understanding and our own ways. Our ways may seem good at the time, but they lead us into some dumb mistakes and messy places.
Where are you depending on your own vision? Where are you leaning on your own understanding and trusting your own path in life? Ask God to shine the light on where you need to turn your life and attitude over to the Lord. Start each day this week with this prayer: “God, give me your vision. Help me trust you and release my control to You. Help me remember that You love me and guide me to live better than I love and guide myself. Lead me. I trust you.”
