Perspective

It's almost comical how things can look totally different from different perspectives.

Take this box:


From this perspective...it looks like an impossible box.
Sometimes, actually quite often, life seems confusing and it feels like there's no possible way it could turn out good. Or how what you're going through right now, makes any sense or has any purpose.
But that's OUR perspective.
Our simple minded, human, perspective.

But what about God's perspective?
God doesn't see things how we see it. He sees ALL.
His perspective is from an all-knowing perspective.
I love this song, God Sees the Storm. Extremely powerful lyrics.


Isaiah 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts" 

God's thoughts are so much more than ours. It's impossible for us to comprehend His thoughts.
He has a plan and purpose for EVERYTHING. And He understands EVERYTHING. EVER situation. It's not confusing to Him.
If we were to see things from God's perspective...we would see life a whole lot differently. 


It's the perspective of the Maker that is the real one.
