What is it we don’t see? What do we miss each day because of our busyness? In Luke 10:41-42, Jesus talks to Martha about her busyness and how few things are needed, but indeed only one – and that ONE THING is Jesus.
What keeps us from seeing Jesus? What are things we miss and don’t see because we are too busy. Is it those texts, emails, tweets, selfies? Is it that to-do list calling us type “As” to get the next thing done NOW. We fail to see Him because of all our busyness in working and the demands we all have raising families, taking care of parents, stressful jobs, etc..
Sometimes we don’t see Him because we don’t call on Him. Difficulties bombard our lives, and we forget that He is there every moment and ready to walk us through it. We come home so exhausted and too tired to take time to sit at His feet and call on Him. Remember that He heals the brokenhearted.
We even miss him in nature. Have you ever looked up in awe at the night sky with millions and millions of stars – stars that He created He calls them by name. Have you ever just stopped and marveled at what He has done?
Do you ever just take a walk when life seems crazy? I can throw on my tennis shoes and walk down the road and come home a different person. It’s little things while I am on that walk like seeing a rabbit, a blue bird, a beautiful flower, a horse and most times it is all of them. It’s the intricate details of a flower or a butterfly created by a glorious artist. It’s the miracle of a baby designed by a divine engineer. How long has it been since you soaked in a sunset? How about a storm that is so loud the walls are shaking, the hail is hitting the roof, and the rain is pouring down? We’ve had a lot of those in Texas this year and lots of flooding. Have you laid in bed praying for God to calm the storms, and watched Him do it.
Charles Finney said “A state of mind that sees God in everything is evidence of growth in grace and a thankful heart.
“When you see God in small things, you’ll see God in all things.” Donald L. Hicks
Lord teach us to see you in everything.
