Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Do You See It?

on July 10, 2016

Isaiah 46:10a- “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come…”

A spectacular-looking boat with a colorful spinnaker glided into view outside our vacation rental. “Honey, look! There’s the most beautiful sailboat in the bay!”

My husband left his comfortable seat to peer out the window. “Where? I don’t see anything.”

“It’s straight out there. Right where I’m pointing.” I thrust my finger forward for emphasis.

He shrugged his shoulders. “I still don’t see it.”

I crooked my finger and beckoned him to my side. “The trees must be blocking it from your view. Come stand by me. You’ll be able to see it from over here.”

He reached over to grab a handful of snacks from the table and sauntered over for one final try.  “Ah, there it is!”




You have probably had a similar incident happen, haven’t you? One person sees something that the other cannot because of his vantage point?

That’s how it is with God. He can see everyone—and everything—past, present, and future—because of his unique vantage point.

If we were God, we could be 100% certain that we had done the right thing: taken the perfect job, married the ideal person, guided our children correctly.

If only we could see things from a perspective such as His.

From beginning to end, Genesis through Revelation, God’s Word helps us do just that.

By drawing close to God through his Word, we can change our vantage point.

No, we will never know all of the answers. We will not be able to foretell the future.

But, when we draw close to The One who does and can, then we only need to follow.

His perspective will keep us safe, secure, and on the right path.
