It’s funny how God works. Ha ha… okay, so it’s only funny to us because we don’t always (if ever) see the BIG picture. We usually see what is either right in front of us or what we choose to see.
For example: I could be sitting in a room that is completely a mess. (now understand, I probably really couldn’t do that because I despise messy rooms, but bear with me). So, I’m sitting in this hypothetical room that is completely trashed and I could ignore the garbage that lies at my feet by simply looking away from it all. Or even better yet, I could close my eyes and get rid of it completely!
The problem is whether I choose to look away or completely ignore the problem, it’s still there. It’s not until I physically get up and starting picking things up that the problem starts to get solved.
So back to my BIG picture thing. When it comes to figuring out how God works, we often sit down and close our eyes ignoring the stuff around us. God wants our eyes to be open! He wants us to be aware of our surroundings and the people he places in our lives! He wants us to get up and physically/spiritually get to work!
So what does this mean to me? This means that I might not completely see the BIG PICTURE that God has planned for me. However, if I am pursuing Him and doing what I know I’m suppose to be doing now (LOVING HIM FIRST, LOVING OTHERS, etc…), I can’t go wrong!
So what decisions/things are you “sitting” down on? Perhaps even have your eyes closed on? Open your eyes, get up, and get to work… God has got this! I promise…
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
