Perception

Perception…

Grandfather taught me that how you perceive a problem is how it will be. If you look at the negative it will be negative, but if you look at the grace it brings things begin to shine. Think about it.

The Lord told us to pray, “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” That’s not only a prayer, it’s the secret to living victoriously in God. The key is to live your life on earth as it is in heaven. Most believers live on earth as it is on earth. But then if you have troubles on earth, you’ll live troubled. If you have setbacks on earth, you’ll live discouraged. If you have people trespass against you on earth, you’ll live in anger, bitterness, or unforgiveness.

We let our peace, our well-being, and our joy go up and down – all because we’re living on earth as it is on earth. Don’t live in your situation as it is in your situation, or in your emotions as it is in your emotions. That’s all on earth as it is on earth. What matters is how it is in heaven. Stop living an “on earth as it is on earth” life, and start living an “on earth as it is in heaven” life. In heaven, it’s blessed. And your life will be just as blessed when you start living on earth as it is in heaven.

Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Psalm 119:89

Seek to live this day not from earth to earth, and not even from earth to heaven, but from heaven to earth.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
