Reorient Your Perspective

3 min read

Have you lost sight of whats most important? If you’re feeling confused or overwhelmed right now, allow Jesus to reorient your perspective and move forward with clarity.

Reorient your perspective

As you begin today’s walk, plant your feet squarely on the floor. Feel the ground beneath you. Place your hand on your heart. Begin breathing slowly, in and out, drawing in the grace of God and exhaling out tension, stress and fear.

Join with me and say: ‘I receive God’s peace today. I release all fear. I give over my anxiety to the God who loves me. I’m not alone. I’m loved. And I am needed.’

I invite you to contemplate the power of your perspective today.

Gently consider this question: “Where might my perspective need refreshing?”

The perspectives we have on God, ourselves and our circumstances deeply impact how we experience life. A.W. Tozer, a 20th-century preacher, wrote: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

He’s talking about perspective.

How we perceive God matters

How we perceive God and the world around us matters. The magnificent St. Paul’s Cathedral was constructed in London between 1675 and 1711. Sir Christopher Wren, an English architect, was in charge of overseeing the work.

The story goes that a journalist wanted to interview workers on the project, so he chose three and simply asked them. “What are you doing?”

The first replied, “I’m cutting stone for 10 shillings a day.”

The next answered, “I’m putting in 10 hours a day on this job.”

But the third straightened up and said, “I’m helping Sir Christopher Wren construct one of London’s greatest cathedrals.”

One worker was earning a living. Another was just doing a task. But the third was contributing to something extraordinary.

It was a matter of perspective.

True Perspective

When you have a true perspective of God and life, you can find meaning in the mundane. God can use you anywhere! Even small things can become profound moments of kingdom value. How, though, do we live with such a Christ-centered perspective? The answer is to align ourselves with God’s view by connecting with Him daily.

The Bible, in particular, is invaluable for perspective reorientation. It confronts our human thinking and points us consistently to a bigger picture. Scripture is our direct line to unshakable hope and eternal meaning.

Psalm 46 contains one of the most perspective-altering commands around. It’s a statement to live by. Whatever’s going on in life, this verse can revolutionize your day. Breathe deeply and let this ancient directive resonate in your soul.

“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10.

This scripture is transformative. Amid our overwhelming busyness, it restores everything to its rightful place. God is God. Not us. God is God. And that means He’s in control.

If we’re with Him, nothing can take us out. Peace can be ours!

Allow Jesus to reorient your perspective today

Will you allow Jesus to reorient your perspective today? Will you let Him be God over your circumstances? Let’s take our own moment of stillness.

Quiet your thoughts. Resist the distractions around you.

Know, deep in your being, that God is truly God. It’s a reality, which changes everything. What you’re doing today matters. Your life has purpose.

Let us close this day with a prayer.

“Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, thank you for this time together. As I return to my day, would you go ahead of me, dwell within me, and shine through me, blessing all who cross my path. God of hope, would you fill me to overflow with all joy and peace by the power of your Holy Spirit.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
