Big Picture versus Little Picture

God has plans for you

God said that He is different from us… no kidding… lol.
He said He behaves / acts differently, and He thinks / processes information differently.

That is not a condemnation, just a differentiation.

Wait a minute! Some may say… didn’t He create us in His image and likeness? What’s this differentiation stuff all about?

Well, for starters, we are finite, we live in time, then we die. He is infinite, He lives in eternity, never dies, His existence is eternal.

We think in terms of past present and future, but a thousand years is as a day to God.

We only see what time allows us to see, and it’s a little picture of reality. God sees it all, nothing is hidden from Him.

The beauty of it all, is that God has made plans for us. His plan is to share His eternal existence with us and allow us to see the big picture. His intent is for us to be ‘family’ to Him, to be ‘joint heirs with Christ’ and eventually, to know, just as we are known by Him.

Now we see only a dim likeness of things. It is as if we were seeing them in a foggy mirror. But someday we will see clearly. We will see face to face. What I know now is not complete. But someday I will know completely, just as God knows me completely.

(1 Corinthians 13:12 NIRV)

So, to summarize…

There is a lot more to your life than the issues you face daily. As demanding or intense as they may be, they are only ‘little picture’ issues. Don’t let them drag you down.

Try to look beyond them… try to see what God is doing or wanting to do in your life. Ask Him to intervene in your life. Put hope in Him… He has a plan for you.
