How often do we ask God for something based off what we think we need to get there?
Our life-filter is our own experiences, our own thought processes. But in doing so, we muddy God’s waters. We get caught up in our own mire rather than His refreshing life streams. We try to forge our own path holding old maps so close to our eyes we can’t see where we’re really going.
The best thing we can do is to get out of God’s way, and stop putting up our own detour signs to direct Him. After all, we’re not the architect of this world, He is. He knows which path we should be on, and when we shift focus from us to Him, we’re more able to see it.
God is not a God of the middle man. He’s a God of the end result.
Too often, we live life looking in our fogged-up mirrors. We view the world over our shoulder, based on a distorted glance at past experiences. God is asking us to pick up a clear window and look ahead. To look at Him in front of us, and to invite others to share the view.
God doesn’t care what’s behind us. He only cares that we keep moving forward.
Let’s drop the mirrors and pick up a window, and just see how much more of God we can invite others to view with us. Where we see gravity, He sees the limitless universe.
Let’s shift our focus from what we think to what He knows, and see where He wants to take us.
