THE other day when I was mowing the lawn it seemed as if nothing was happening and the grass wasn’t being cut but later when I looked out of the window of the house I could tell that it had been cut.
Very often when we are close to things, we do not see them in the same light that we do when they are viewed from a distance.
Problems and difficulties seem to be very large when seen close up but when we take a few steps back they do not appear to be half as bad as we first thought.
We live in a day and age when people are forever wanting to see things close up which makes it much more difficult to view the whole picture in its entirety.
In many of Jesus Christ’s encounters with people that we read about in the gospels, he leads them to take a step back and see the situation as he sees it and how he can answer their need.
Viewing a landscape of our daily lives is often much better than the close up because then we see the whole picture which can help us to understand the ‘whys’ of the situation.
As we face our life situations now, let us ask God to enable us to see the full picture and give it over to him to answer for the betterment of our lives and for those around us.
