Looking at God Instead of Your Circumstances

If you look at your circumstances through God’s eyes, then your circumstances won’t obscure your view of God.

We make life a lot harder than it needs to be. This happens whenever the circumstances in our lives discourage us. When problems arise, and nothing goes right, the stress builds. We become unhappy, discouraged, and discontented. It is in those tough times that God seems distant.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Instead of trying to see God through your circumstances, try the opposite approach. Look at your circumstances through God’s eyes.

God doesn’t see your circumstances as insurmountable. He’s not intimidated or discourage by them. Since they aren’t problems for Him, they shouldn’t be for you.

The next time you find yourself loooking down in despair, lift your head and start looking up. Stop worrying about your obstacles, and start thinking about the God who can help you overcome them.

For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philippians 4:13
