Do we see problems from God’s Perspective?
Do we see problems from God’s perspective? When things happen in our life do we ever question God, “what does this mean, God?’ and “How does it affect me?”
Most of time when problems come into life, we have a tendency to say, “woe is me” and wonder how this problem is going to affect us. Will it cause me pain? Will it cost me money? We tend to look at it from an earthly perspective.
Have we ever looked at the problem from the perspective, what is God trying to teach me? How can I glorify God in this? As part of Christian maturity, we start seeing things in light of the God’s perspective. Do we trust that God knows what is best for us?
When we trust that God has orchestrated the events in our life, it allows us to have the faith to believe God is using these events to build our faith. Faith is like a muscle, the more we use it the stronger it gets. 1 Peter tells us that our faith is more valuable than gold and it results in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus is revealed.
1 Peter 1:6-7
6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
