Yesterday's blog referenced our unrealized dreams and today's devotional mentions unanswered prayers. So often the two go together... our dreams or desires become the motivation for our prayers. Then, when those prayers seem to go unanswered, or are denied, we can be tempted to doubt God's faithfulness and love. This is when I have to remind myself that human perspective falls so short of Divine perspective.
God's Sovereignty (January 4 blog) gives Him the grand and glorious BIG picture. So, just when I'm tempted to worry, thinking He's unaware or doesn't care, I need to open my eyes, my heart and my mind to His "BIG picture" perspective. It makes so much sense... to be trained NOW to trust the One I'll be serving and spending all eternity with!
That inspires me to be even more thankful... He is "setting the scene for (His) glorious intervention" in the very ordinary daily-ness of my life. I must remember... He's preparing me for my extra-ordinary future!
