“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Your perspective should be determined by your revelation, not the reality on ground. This season, learn to trust God to help your perspective. The reason why you are agitated, fearful and depressed is because of your perspective. Don’t forget that your problem is not the problem, your perspective is. Don’t go into the 2nd half of year 2020 with the wrong perspective so you won’t get the wrong results. This is why you must learn to get into God’s presence in prayers, in worship and in the word.
It is in God’s presence that our perspective is helped. People and situations around can colour life wrongly for us, but when we get into God, we see things the way they really are (Psalms 73:17 ). What we see in God is what really is, not what life is showing us.
You need to get into relationships that would help your perspective. This is not time to company with losers. This is not time to keep company with complainers and negative minded people. This is not time to company with a mediocre. This is not time to company with those who puncture your faith and deflate your energy.
This is time to company with those who stretch you; those who help you to see life the way God wants you to see it. This is time to company with visionaries. This is time to company with people who are seeing better and doing better. This is time to company with people who are in tune with God; those who know and see what God is doing and not just what is happening around.
Listen, behind what the devil is doing or what is happening around is what God is doing. Anytime you see the devil at work, know that God is also at work; in fact God has been at work long before the devil. I often tell people that the devil really has no work, he has no agenda, as it were. The devil begins to work when He sees God at work. He begins to work on you and on stuff around you so as to stop you from partaking in what God is working.
May you see the works of God above and beyond what the devil is doing or what life is throwing at you!
