“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” – Romans 8:28
Do you ever feel like some days you serve God and live fully in Him and other days you don’t? That’s because sometimes it’s easy to see God working in our lives and other times we feel like we don’t. This is because of a word called, “perspective.” Our perspective is how we see things, not actually how they are. Just because we can’t see God working doesn’t mean He isn’t. When we feel like we don’t see God working in our lives part of our flesh wants to give up living for God. We think, “God I’ve been praying about this for hours and nothing has changed. So I’ll do this my way since your way doesn’t seem to be working.” This is the part of our heart’s perspective that plays tricks on us.
John reminds us though that God is greater than our perspective, even the nagging voice that keeps us from receiving all Christ has in store for us. Remember 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” God is greater and He is faithful.
The reality is that God is working for you. God is madly in love with you and God will never let you go. Depend upon God and live for Him today and every day of the year! It’s so important to stay connected to God every moment of every day.
