Consider God’s hand in your life.
When we’re in the middle of a concern, it’s not always easy to keep in mind that God has the best for us as part of His plan. In the middle we can be so consumed by all the details that the bigger picture eludes us. It can be hard – almost impossible – to sort through the possibilities to see where these experiences and events are leading us…
God is in the details and the bigger picture!
Yes – God is directing the details to make up the bigger picture for our life. And His end goal is to bring us closer to Him. Regardless of the details, the big picture He wants for us is to be with Him for all eternity.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
When can you see how the details come together to build the big picture?
It’s easiest to see how all the details come together to build the big picture if you invest some time in quiet prayer to examine the details. Ask God to show you His plan for your life… you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results! (It might take a while – be patient and persistent in prayer. It’ll be worth it!)
“The un-examined human life is a lost chance to behold the Divine.” That’s a quote by Frederick Buechner, an American writer and theologian.
Grab the opportunity for a bit of examination on how God has planned out the details in your life. Take note of where it’s all come together for your good… so far!
And even if the details right now are kind of sucky, there’s more good to come! We can trust God. Just ask Him.
He loves us. He loves you!
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
~ Matthew 7:11
