When you are worried about
problems in your life, do you ever stop to think about where
you are coming from in facing them vs. where God is coming
from? Perspective can be an interesting thing. Consider a
$5 bill lying on the ground to be found by 2 different people.
1 person finds it who is homeless and might sustain himself
for 3 days on the food that money would buy. They are grateful
for that money beyond belief. The other person is wealthy
and may choose not to pick it up simply because it is soiled
and wouldn't be worth the trouble. Such is true of the difference
in the perspectives of God and man. We see many of our issues
as insurmountable, He sees them as opportunities for us to
show our faith and trust in him, and opportunities for us
to learn and grow from the situation. When trouble finds you,
lean not on your understanding, but trust the Lord that he
will see you through.
