Forest for the Trees - August 6, 2020

I don't want you to miss the forest for the trees. I don't want you to miss the things and people and circumstances I've placed right in front of you just because they look different than you think they should look or different than you were expecting. I want to tell you today that it's all window dressing and you've got to be able to see beyond it if you're going to get beyond it. It's not just the difference between how I see things and how you see things. I'm telling you it's the difference between how I see things and whether you're willing or able to see anything at all. It's time for you to really share my vision. Not just my vision for what I want to do or what needs to be done. I want you to share my vision for how things are seen; what's real, what's true, what's not and what's what. One things for certain, really seeing is never really very convenient because really seeing demands really loving and really caring and really saying what I would say and really doing what I would do, and really not doing what I would absolutely not do. The truth is it's really just easier to keep seeing in a way that's not seeing at all because really seeing costs so much. But really seeing in clarity sure beats not seeing what's right in front of you just because you're not willing to see it for what it really is.

We are on a journey with God, learning to see Him for who He really is, in us and for us, and learning to hear His voice in a way that allows us to respond to Him and cooperate with Him so that we can really know Him .
