The Bigger Picture

like heaven 2

Yet I am always with You;
You hold my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel,
and afterward You will take me up in glory.

Psalm 73:23-24

As we begin a new week, with new challenges, struggles, and opportunities, I am reminded what our time here is all about. We can get caught up in all the tiny details that we miss the bigger picture. Psalm 73:23-24 says it–God is with us, guiding us each day, then will take us up to heaven with Him.

Focusing on this simple perspective helps us to have peace and to let go of worry. When we allow God to lift up our heads, seeing our lives from His perspective, the worries that are in the details suddenly fade away. God will take care of all of it. We are commanded to experience Him one moment at a time.

On this first day of the new week, allow God to lift your head to see the bigger picture. Give Him your worries and ask Him to exchange them for peace. Ask for Him to make His presence known to you. Look upon His face and see His glory. He is always with you, holding your right hand, guiding your with His counsel. Then one day, He will take you up in glory.
