I am bit quirky when it comes to perceiving life, people and things…I tend to look at something and then wonder what else may be there, what would God want to say to me about that? There are a lot of thoughts going on in this brain of mine. Seeing things from so many angles!
When I was young, it got me into trouble a bit, because I would hear everyones point of view and think they were ALL right! I had this knack for “seeing” each persons point of view. But, people didn’t really like that. They wanted me to take sides. I needed to learn Gods perspective.
Because of life experiences, (Everyone has different life experiences)it is difficult to really “see”. To learn Gods perspective I needed to read the Bible, and seek an open relationship with Him. Only HE knows the truth. And He IS the truth. His Spirit gives me an accurate perception of Himself, life, others and myself.
Life is full of perspectives and has a multi-faceted way of showing itself. It is not linear. So, I probably shouldn’t live as if life was linear. Being open to change things up a bit, gives me a wider perspective. But, to do that I MUST be rooted and grounded in Christ and in Gods word. Not in the way the world views things.
The world still sees things linear, and tries desperately to connect things that really weren’t supposed to be connected. There is SO much going on beyond our range of sight. Gods Spirit can give us the vision needed, the heart needed. Its scary to view things with a new perspective, but oh the benefits.
Peace, love, patience, kindness, joy, wisdom…all benefits of a perspective rooted and grounded in Christ and Gods word.
VERSES TO PONDER:
James 1:6 ~ But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.
Ephesians 4:14 ~ Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.
