Our daughter, Sarai, came into my room yesterday, to chat, as I was getting ready for church
Sarai was talking about our new home that is currently being built, and the possibility of having more than one TV in the house (which has been intentional by Kieren and myself up until now.) Therefore, Sarai wanted to know if the next TV we have would be bigger – like the one we had when we lived in the UK.
I suddenly realised why she thought that it was so big, and remind her that the TV we have now is bigger and that she was only four-years-old when we emigrated.
The revelation hit her almost instantaneously because she realised as a “child,” everything seems “bigger.”
Friends, there is a reason that we are called a Son, or Daughter of the Most High
We need to remember that we are on a Spiritual journey to wholeness. All of us on different walks or stages in life with God, and therefore, we grow in Him each day that we spend together
When I think about the circumstances I have faced before finding God, and up until now, I clearly see where spiritual immaturity played a part, compared to how I see life now, and where I know I will end up
As a child, we see things out of perspective. In other words, what you are going through now, you will look back on, and see how much you have grown.
You will look back, and see how small the issue really was, when you were obedient to God
You will look back on your faith journey, and see that that mountain was actually more like a hill
We need to realise that we are all growing in our relationship with God, and so, currently, we may see things differently, partially, or incomplete
I want to encourage you today, to hold onto God tightly, because the journey He has you on, is never to harm you, but to encourage and equip you for what is to come. Seek God daily, and watch as the things that we struggled with today, will not effect us “tomorrow,” because just like Sarai, she realised that the TV didn’t get smaller, she got bigger
