Perspective is how you view something, someone or a situation. You can have a change in perspective by moving and looking from another direction. This takes work and is not simple adding more information. But physically or mentally shifting your position on many things to impact your perspective on one thing.
I believe that one of the largest hurdles for people is to simply trusting God in all things. In most cases this creates a perspective problem. Trusting God involves much more than just simply remembering a Bible verse (s). It’s allowing God, through His Word and the circumstances of life, to shift your perspective. Not just your perspective on one small event, moment or problem in your life, but on your whole life. Once you see something one way it becomes very difficult to unsee.
A change in perspective requires nothing more than a simple shift. When we shift our perspective from holding life tighter we enable ourselves to live life with open hands and this leads to trust in God and worship.
Additionally, we must also consider shifting our perspective from that of a microwave to a crockpot. Contrary to this instantaneous driven world we live in, growth takes time and you can’t rush it!
I know some of you maybe shock to hear this but, we should also consider shifting from trying to understand God’s perspective with fully understanding our perspective. There is a human perspective and a God perspective. It is not our Job to have God’s perspective. It is our job to trust and worship God.
Still struggling with this disposition? I invite you to read or re-read the 33 chapters in the book of Job. The reason God asked Job all of those questions was to show him, that he cannot understand why God does what He does. But He does it because He is God. Job never got to know why. All he got to know was in the end, God knew exactly what He was doing.
As we go through life, as we live life with others. We can look at Bible verses and we can try and live them. We can raddel them off for others going through a time where things don’t make sense. But let’s be honest, sometimes information alone is not enough. We may need a perspective shift. Going from God change my circumstances to God change me. At the end of the day, the shift in your perspective does not change what is happening, it simply changes how you see it.
