A Bigger Story

God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. —1 John 3:20

God is writing a Story—the Story of redemption. It is grander and greater than anything we can imagine. And there are some important things we need to remind ourselves often about His Story and how it relates to the story He is writing in and through each of our lives.

First, our individual stories are part of a much bigger Story. At times, we will experience heartache, loss, disappointment, and unfulfilled longings. But He is weaving all of that into a Story that will have us lost in wonder and worship when we get to the end.

Ultimately, this Story is not about us but about Him. We are bit players in His Story. We are not the stars. He is!

Finally, perspective makes all the difference. God sees the beginning and the end and everything in between; we only see this present moment. He has a wide-angle lens and sees the whole mural He is painting in all of history. We see only the little speck of time and space we occupy at this moment.

Make it Personal

Thank God that He sees the beginning, the end, and everything in between. Ask Him to help you trust His perspective.
