Big to Us, Small to Him

It’s probable that there are some places or some objects that you saw when you are a child – maybe a grandparent’s home, a tree you used to climb, your elementary school, maybe even your grade school teacher – that you go back and visit as an adult and think to yourself, “Wow. I used to think that was so huge, but it’s so small now!” Through your eyes, as a child, you saw the world around you in such a different way. You looked up at everything, and from your vantage point, everything was so much different than it is now.

As God’s children, we see everything at such a different angle than He does. We look up at the problems we face – that doctor’s report, that unwanted divorce, that boss or coworker who picks on us, that bill that’s way more money than we have in the bank – and we cannot fathom how we will get past it. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever faced, and from our vantage point, there’s no getting over it.

God is the Creator of everything. There is nothing bigger than He is, because He made everything! From His viewpoint, the things that we cannot see ourselves getting past are tiny obstacles. It’s not that He wants us to adopt his viewpoint – He wants us to stop looking at them altogether and look at Him, instead.

2 Corinthians 4:17 says, “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!” One translation calls our present troubles “small potatoes.” When we look past the problem and look at the Creator, we can put things in perspective and realize there is nothing too big for Him to handle, and that our troubles are no big deal when it comes to the glorious life God has planned for us!

  1. Howdy! This is my first reply here so I just wanted to give a fast hello and tell you I truly enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you recommend other sites that deal with zapya app download? I’m also really intrigued by that thing! Thanks for your time!

  2. A lot of of whatever you articulate is supprisingly appropriate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this issue goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one point I am not necessarily too comfortable with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the central idea of the issue, permit me observe just what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Well done.
