God has an amazing plan for our lives. But at times we can get so engrossed in the now, the present
and forget that God is moving in our lives.
We need to learn to regularly take a step back or zoom out.
I was given a picture of this as I played a game. The game is called, Guess The Picture.
And the point of the game is to decipher a magnified picture as quick as you can.
The game is best played with a group of people.
In the beginning, you can’t make out the picture because it is magnified to the max but when
the game starts the picture begins to zoom out and the picture gets clearer and clearer.
And that’s what happens when we are so zoomed in. The picture makes no sense because
it’s a blur.
But as we take a step back and look at the answered prayers, the breakthroughs, the things
God has done for us, we begin to realize that God really is in control. He knows exactly what
we are going through. Taking a step back strengthens our faith as we see God’s faithfulness.
But also remember that God is working through the tests and trials we face. They are not
meaningless or pointless.
Think about a an image for a moment.
What makes an image? Pixels right.
An image is comprised of millions of pixels.
But this is the thing, without pixels, there is no image. A picture cannot exist without pixels.
Pixels play a very important role in the formation of a picture and that is the same in our lives.
The difficult times, the trials, the tests, all have a purpose. We are learning to trust God more.
We are experiencing His faithfulness and greatness in the hard times.
We are growing in the midst of intense opposition.
So don’t disregard what you are going through today. It’s not meaningless or pointless.
God is working in the midst of the tests, trials and hardships. Trust Him.
As I close I want to remind you that God is at work in your life, even in the times when it doesn’t
seem like it. Take a step back and see His hand in every aspect of your life.
