Daily devotional

Think of a glass of water sitting on a dining table in a restaurant. One person may see the glass half full of water, while another sees the glass half empty. The glass itself contains the same amount of water no matter how you look at it.

When you are looking through satan’s eyes at his plan for your life, it is going to be a dark, twisted, distorted view, filled with doubt, lack, despair, loneliness, and the never ending fear of what is coming. The glass will continue to drain away until there is nothing left. Then what will you do?

When you look through the eyes of Jesus at His plan for your life, you will find it full of hope, love, light, acceptance, forgiveness, and you will face the day knowing that whatever comes, God has got your back. If the glass does run out of water, the waiter can refill it. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). No weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17). So we may boldly say: ‘The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’ (Hebrews 13:6).

From whose point of view are you looking at your life from? If you feel burdened down like you are carrying the world on your shoulders, then it is the wrong one, and that is not uncommon today. Life is busy, and there are often many things pulling from many directions. Don’t let it get to you. You were never meant to be everything to everyone, all the time. You just need to be you. They can all accept you, or not, it is ok. God does.
