The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:2 ESV)
What a view! God hovered OVER the face of the waters. God is able to see things that we don’t see. He understands things that leave us scratching our heads. He sees the bigger picture. He sees our lives from above.
His perspective is vast.
Your perspective is limited.
God limits your perspective so that you will lean on him for wisdom, understanding, and peace.
I’m not sure what your circumstances are today. Maybe you have a lot on your plate at work. Maybe you have a friend or family member struggling with cancer. Maybe the odds feel stacked against your life. Maybe you feel like you can barely keep your head above the water.
Remember that God is above the water. He hovers above your life with a purpose and a plan. Not only does he hover above with the ability to see a bigger picture. He WALKS WITH YOU through the uncertainty. And he will certainly guide you all the way through. (Psalm 23:4)
