Change Your Perspective
1 Corinthians 9:22, “To those who are weak, I became weak so I could win the weak. I have become all things to all people so I could save some of them in any way possible.”
There's a story of a Bible translator named Fraiser who lived in northern Burma. He decided to translate the Bible into the Lisu language. At one point he had to do some Bible translating elsewhere so he left the task of teaching the people to read, to a young fellow teacher.
Six months later Fraiser returned to find the teacher and three students sitting at a table, the Bible opened in front of the teacher. He was surprised to hear each student reading the scripture so well from where they were seated without moving the Bible from in front of the teacher.
The man on the left read it sideways. The man on the right read it sideways but from the other side and the man across from the teacher read it upside down. Since they all occupied the same chair each time they studied, they all learn to read from that perspective, and they all thought that was how their language was written.
Although we are given a brand-new day each day, when we wake up, we seldom see it with a brand-new outlook. Although the date changes our days are filled with the same routine, same troubles, same responsibilities, and the same faces.
Too often, like the students, we begin to see only from our perspective. We see solutions to our problems but not to anybody else's situation. We forget to see each new day as new opportunities and forget to change seats to see things from a different angle. We get it so one sided in our own lives that we forget to help others. We see truths from our own perspective and forget to see any other perspective that could help someone with the same truths and ideas.
God tells us His love is new every morning. Wouldn't it be nice if we could look at each new day with a fresh perspective? If we could try to see things more as God does and learn new ways to help others and serve Him better.
Although we have the wonderful truth that God's Word never changes, when we try to look at things in new way our understanding of God changes. When our perspective changes our life broadens in the ways we can solve problems or even help others. You may even find solutions to something that has plagued you for years.
Welcome each day as a brand-new day. Let go of yesterday's troubles and worries. You can't change what has passed so instead of regarding each day as just another day to get through, ask God to show you new opportunities, new insights regarding Him and ways you can be the best light to others of Him and His love.
From God's perspective this is what He sees:
· He sees where you can be, not just where you are.
· He sees the unlimited potential that is inside of you.
· He sees you for who you are in Christ.
· He sees all the promises you have received through Christ.
· He sees the plans He has for you.
· He sees what He can do in you and through you.
· He sees you for who you truly are, your true identity that is rooted in Christ.
Jesus is the Author and Finisher of your faith. Today, change your perspective and start seeing your life from God's point of view and experience a new life of abundance that God has given you, new every morning.
Scripture is the hope of heaven. And what I mean by this is that full understanding, full enjoyment of the truth of Scripture, will be experienced only in heaven. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)
The knowledge of God — all the fullness that a created being can properly comprehend and enjoy — will not be withheld from us indefinitely. The frustrations of our present limitations of understanding and enjoyment will be removed. How fitting it is, then, that we be ever growing now in what will be our final joy in the age to come. Today let's continue reading our study with 2 Corinthians chapter 6.
