God’s perspective on life is different from our own. Often times we can only keep sight of what’s right in front of us and not on the saving grace God has in store. We don’t move because we are afraid the outcome won’t come out as planned. We do not step out onto the shores of the unknown because the vulnerability is too risky. We are hesitant to trust that God’s plan will be what is best for us (Romans 8:28).

Darling, you mustn’t be afraid of swimming past beyond what you know. You must leap forward with expectancy that all the promises that God holds for you are eternally true. God's perspective on what is present and what is to come is higher than our own. 

So what is God’s perspective on life? He knows the miracle He’s going to bring at the right moment. He knows that the winds and heavy rain will be a part of His healing. He takes delight in the days that seem most insignificant to us because He knows it is the stepping stone to His perfect plan. He knows that seasons will change but He brings out the adventure and beauty in each and every one. We are discontent in where we are, we long for more then what we have, but He calls us to take delight and sense His presence right where we are, right now.

My prayer is we would see our life through the Morning Star’s eyes. May our life, our joy, our willingness to step out into the future stem from the confidence that He will do immeasurably more then all we can ask for or imagine, (Ephesians 3:20).

Let us go forth empowered. Seeing who we are through His eyes, seeing each season of life as He does, and living our lives fully healed because of our faith in His faithfulness (Luke 8:48). 

Have courage, daughter, to go forth and see the presence of Jesus in your life; seeing each moment through the Savior’s eyes. 

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you, (Isaiah 60:1). You will be in awe at the sight of His glory shining in your life.
