Poh is my favorite writer for Our Daily Bread. Thank you for a wonderful writing this morning! Amen!

Divine Perspective
By Poh Fang Chia
Read: Habakkuk 2:2-14

Jason took a trip to New York during spring break. One afternoon he and some friends piled into a cab and headed for the Empire State Building. To Jason, the ride on the ground seemed chaotic and dangerous. But when he got to the observation deck of the skyscraper and looked down on the city streets, to his amazement he saw order and design. What a difference a change in perspective made!

Habakkuk learned a similar lesson. When he looked at life from his earthly vantage point, it seemed that God was indifferent to the evil permeating society (Hab. 1:2-4). But God gave him a divine perspective and showed him that life is more than what it seems. The deeds of men cannot thwart the purposes of God (2:3).

Those who don’t show any regard for God may seem to prosper at the moment, but God will ultimately right all wrong. God acts sovereignly in all that comes to pass so that everything works toward His good purpose. God’s plan will surely take place and be on schedule (v.3).

We can’t sort out the whole picture from where we are in life; only God can. So let us continue to live by faith and not by sight. From His perspective, all things are working together for the believer’s good and for His honor.

  1. Thank you so much for reminding me about your blog!! I really needed this one today. I so need to change my perspective most of the time. I have high expectations and when others are continually benefiting and behaving badly it makes me so angry. I need a daily reminder that my God is in control, there is only so much I can do.

    Thank you my dear friend!!

  2. Time and again I have learned that ultimately all the chaos that surrounds me is not chaos to God, and I need to quiet my soul in His presence to feel His peace. Thank you, again, for your obedience in sharing this gift God has given you!
