Some days are challenging at best, and it seems that I am always going to be in the exact same condition for the rest of my life. And while that seems like the true reality because it is based on what I can see, feel, taste, hear and touch, if I ask God to open the eyes of my heart, there actually is a never-ending supply of grace that I can tap into at any given moment. This grace will enable me to rise up and take courage. When I get into that space, God’s way of doing things becomes the true reality.
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 2 Peter 3:8
This is one of the scriptures that helps me access the right perspective.
A Practical Example
When I look at things in the natural, it seems like it will take a thousand years for me get rid of the extra weight I carry and then, on top of that, to get in shape. I have tried and tried to exercise and eat right. I have used every diet under the sun.
God says, “When you are working in your own strength, you are right, it will take forever. However, if you will take my yoke and learn of ME, then what would take a thousand years for you, will only take a day for me. I am the Master of changing mindsets and attitudes in a split second. I am not bound by time like you are.”
According to Isaiah 55: 9 God’s ways are higher than our ways. And His ways release His grace, which comes and lifts a heavy yoke from around my neck. Now I can work with Him, instead of against Him. Eating right and exercising becomes a joy. I can enjoy taking care of my body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. And all it took was humility and a simple, slight change in perspective.God's wonderful ways are much higher than our ways. Click To Tweet
By spending time in His presence, He caused a shift in my thinking and it only took Him one day. If I would have kept struggling in my own strength, who knows how long the shift in perspective would’ve taken.
Now, talk about a grace that is amazing. So, it is my prayer that you will relax today and take the time to BeLoved Completely by your Heavenly Father. Allow Him to speak to your heart and reassure you that you are right on track and that He can accomplish in one day what it would take us a thousand years to do.
