Often we look at God through the lens of life.
How different would things be if we looked at life through the lens of God?
Our circumstances and how we are feeling can make a difference to how we view other people and it is no different with God.
So, instead of letting our circumstances dictate our view of God, why don’t we let God dictate our view of our circumstances?
We are living in extraordinary times where there is so much pain and darkness in the world. Will we allow that darkness to skew our view of God or will we allow the light and hope that God embodies to fill us and to spread out to those around us?
Are we doomed to be crushed when things go wrong or do we still believe that God is all powerful and that he is at work in every situation even when we can’t see it clearly?
Is our faith determined by what we see around us or by our view of who God is?
God, help us to look to you and to see who you really are.
I thank you that you are good and that you love the whole world and I pray that you would help us to look to you when everything around us is in chaos.
Thank you God that you do not change. Amen
