Still, when I tried to figure it out,
all I got was a splitting headache . . .
Until I entered the sanctuary of God.
Then I saw the whole picture
The Message 73:16-17
So many times I got a splitting headache just trying to figure something out! Life is just hard. There is nothing easy about it. We think the next phase of our life - getting married, going to college, getting a new job or career, etc.- will be the fix to our complicated life. Life is just difficult in all aspect.
Thank God we serve the Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and the end of our whole life and any circumstances we go through. Since He is the Most High God, He can see the beginning and end of any circumstances just like we see the beginning and end of a road trip on a map. Like us using GPS, He can see any road work, shortcuts, and roadblocks and helps us maneuver around with simplicity. All this is possible when we enter in prayer and in His presence to get the directions we need for life.
If you are going through any rough spot right now, get into a quiet place with God for His directions. All wisdom belongs to Him! He will guide and direct you to a victorious and triumphant ending! Go into His sanctuary and then you will see the WHOLE picture!
