“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.” – Isaiah 55:8 NIV
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” – 1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV
Lord God, Thank you for having the perspective that I do not. Knowing this gives me peace and comfort. Remind me that my brethren may be going through a situation that I don’t completely understand. Help me to love by giving the benefit of the doubt. Help me be open to different actions for different situations. Help me to genuinely ask why” so I may be sympathetic. Help me uplift those around me. Give me patience and a realization that I too am fallible and need You daily. I need you for strength, perseverance, comfort, peace and perspective. Thank You Jesus. AMEN
Reflect on a situation where you came to a judgement but later found out it was incorrect. How did you feel? Have you experienced someone coming to a wrong conclusion regarding your actions? How do you avoid coming to a wrong conclusion?
I will remind myself God knows the bigger picture for all of our lives. He knows the beginning and the end. I will put my trust and faith in His direction in my life. I will withhold judgement and think of other possible reasons for people’s actions. I will love people by listening to their perspective and validating them. I uplift them as a child of God.
Post your picture with #Perspective #azurehills for today and let us catch a glimpse of God’s presence in your everyday life.
