Two farmers were talking about their crops. Said one, “Aren’t you just thrilled over the large healthy crop of potatoes this year?”
“Not really,” came the reply. “It’s plenty good, but now we don’t have the bad ones to feed the pigs.”
Often we deceive ourselves into believing that we are not good enough for God to love. Sometimes we convince ourselves that we are incapable of achieving the opportunities that God has given us.
There are times when we face a situation and everything appears to be going against us. That is exactly the time we need to realize that God is in that very situation and that one thing is always right: He loves us in all places and at all times. We need to cultivate an unshakeable confidence in God, believing that He can lighten every load, brighten every dark corner and straighten out any path He calls us to travel.
As Christians, we can develop a “faith-filled attitude.” He can and will change us from the inside out. We can develop a new way of looking at life, a new way of thinking about life and a new way of living life. We can look at life through His eyes and discover the goodness He wants to share with us.
Prayer: Father, may we learn to look at everything in life through Your eyes, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, find encouragement and opportunity to honor and serve You. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
Scripture: Philippians 4:4-6
