Look at the nations and observe—be utterly astounded! —Habakkuk 1:5

When you hear, “Look!,” what is the first thing you do? You look to see who yelled it, right? You won’t know where to look until you see where they’re looking. If you want to know what has captured their attention, you first have to track the path of their vision.

Habakkuk was looking, but he wasn’t seeing what God wanted him to see. Everything in the prophet’s field of vision drove him to conclude that God had quit caring. So God said, “Look!” And then, with his attention drawn first to God, Habakkuk began to track God’s path of vision. He was soon able to see that God was doing astounding things among the nations.

We all suffer bouts of spiritual myopia, convinced that all we see is all there is. This is when we need to remember that God is always at work in this world, accomplishing His glorious purposes. What is happening in our field of vision is one small piece of a much grander whole.

Make it Personal

Today, make it a point to read about God’s movements in other parts of the world.
