Exodus 4:10-12 (ESV)
10 But Moses said to the Lord, “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.” 11 Then the Lord said to him, “Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”
When you are worried about problems in your life, do you ever stop to think about where you are coming from in facing them vs. where God is coming from? Perspective can be an interesting thing. Consider a $5 bill lying on the ground to be found by 2 different people. 1 person finds it who is homeless and might sustain himself for 3 days on the food that money would buy. They are grateful for that money beyond belief. The other person is wealthy and may choose not to pick it up simply because it is soiled and wouldn't be worth the trouble. Such is true of the difference in the perspectives of God and man. We see many of our issues as insurmountable, He sees them as opportunities for us to show our faith and trust in him, and opportunities for us to learn and grow from the situation. When trouble finds you, lean not on your understanding, but trust the Lord that he will see you through.
Dear Lord, we thank You for opportunities of faith all around us. Give us perspective and help us learn about Your love each day. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
