There are two viewpoints in this life. One is the human viewpoint that we have as we look at circumstances through our own natural minds, thought processes and our own understanding.
The second viewpoint is God’s viewpoint. The Word of God indicates that our human viewpoint is always in conflict with the divine viewpoint. Seeing a problem for what it really is depends on the viewpoint from that you are looking at it from.
The divine viewpoint is looking at our problems, our troubles, and tribulations through the eyes our Lord, and through the promises in His Word.
When we began submitting ourselves to God’s will and start seeing things from the “God viewpoint” as troubles beset us, we will begin to see that the battles in our daily life are not ours, but God’s. In our comings and our goings in our day-to-day life, the battles, and the victories belong to God.
We become so accustomed to seeing life from our own natural viewpoint. As we go through life and struggle facing adversity minute by minute, and day after day, we begin to look at things from our own viewpoint and not God’s. We struggle, kicking the dust in our barren minds of thought and think, “How am I going to get through this; where in the world is the money I need going to come from; how will I ever overcome this sickness; how will my marriage ever stay together? That is the way we think.
God’s viewpoint is completely different. Instead of sitting and contemplating how and if we are going to work out what we see as insurmountable odds, we can look at God’s viewpoint and see that He has all these things already covered. God’s viewpoint is fear not, I am with you; I will supply all your needs; by My stripes you were healed; I am able to do immeasurably more than you ask or can think, imagine, or conceive in your mind, according to My power that is at work within you. The battle is not ours – it’s the Lord’s. See it, believe it, submit it to Him, and He will act upon it.
Looking at our problems from God’s viewpoint is like leaving earth on the space shuttle. As the shuttle begins to leave earth’s orbit, the things on earth seem to become too small to even seen. They are still there, you just can’t see them. This is how God looks at our problems. The things on earth seem huge until you see them while orbiting in the space shuttle, then they do not seem big anymore. As large as the mountains are in our lives, they are but mere grains of sand in God’s hands.
He can easily handle our problems; and He will as we learn to trust Him and to become accustomed to seeing things from God’s viewpoint. He can do more than we can ask for. God knows what we need before we even ask, and He has made provisions for us before we even pray.
Believe in faith that God can move your mountains of past failures, your mountains of illness, your mountains of stressed income, your mountains of marital problems, or whatever your mountain is. God stands willing and ready to perform on your behalf. All you have to do is believe. It is in our human nature to dwell on our problems, weaknesses and failures. It is our spiritual nature to have faith in God for our victory, strength and success.
In Acts 17:28-29 we read that in Him we live and move and have our being, and that we are his offspring. Realizing that we are the sons and daughters of the Almighty God we can boldly believing in faith, confidently, call upon Him for help to move the mountains in our lives. It is nothing for God to move and remove huge mountains and obstacles that are in our way. He will move whatever it is that seems too big, too heavy and too large in our lives for us to overcome. Move boldly forward in faith, see life from God’s viewpoint and He will move the mountains in your life.
Seeing things from the God viewpoint will bring tears of joy to your heart as He washes away all the stress and sorrow from your soul. He will perform miracles in your life that transcends human knowledge. Allow God to work in your life in all of His glory and wonder.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding (viewpoint). In all your ways acknowledge Him (God’s viewpoint), and He will make your paths straight.
