God Sees What We Can’t

God Sees What We Can’t

No one is like the Lord our God, who rules from Heaven. — Psalm 113:5 NCV

On a trip to the United Kingdom, our family visited a castle. In the center of the garden sat a maze. Row after row of shoulder-high hedges, leading to one dead end after another. Successfully navigate the labyrinth, and discover the door to a tall tower in the center of the garden. Were you to look at our family pictures of the trip, you’d see four of our five family members standing on the top of the tower. Hmmm, someone is still on the ground. Guess who? I was stuck in the foliage. I just couldn’t figure out which way to go.

Ah, but then I heard a voice from above. “Hey, Dad.” I looked up to see Sara, peering through the turret at the top. “You’re going the wrong way,” she explained. “Back up and turn right.”

Do you think I trusted her? I didn’t have to. But do you know what I did? I listened. Her vantage point was better than mine. She was above the maze. She could see what I couldn’t.

Don’t you think we should do the same with God?

Hang in there. Trust His Word.

Just like me in the maze, you need a voice to lead you out. Thank God you have One who will.

Life can be a maze of obstacles and dead ends. The fear of a wrong turn — or blocked escape — can paralyze us, send us crashing into walls, or have us running backward in retreat. We need Someone above the maze, a voice to lead us through. We need God. If you need a reminder to look up for the way out, remember this:

My Scripture of Hope

Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You. Psalm 25:4–5 NLT

God’s Promise to Me

God sees what I cannot see. He knows the perfect path for me. I can trust Him to lead me, step by step, through life’s maze.

Your Turn

Do you feel all turned around and like you’re going the wrong way? I get it. Stop and listen to the Lord today. His perspective is entirely different from ours. He sees the beginning, middle, and the end, and He knows us inside and out. Trust Him! ~ Laurie McClure, Faith.Full
