“A radical readjustment to my perspective on this life and the next” is what Nancy Guthrie says she needed when two of her children died in infancy from a rare genetic disorder. ( The One Year Book of Hope, Tyndale Press) It was not a luxury for her. It was a survival necessity. Perhaps, this is why Jesus teaches us to pray. He knows that we live in a “pain-saturated, sin-soaked, darkness-loving world” and that only a vision of a “pain-free, perfect place ablaze with the glory of Christ” will sustain us. Today when I pray “Thy kingdom come” I will ask God for this radical readjustment in my own life. I will ask Him to change my perspective on where I am heading and what ultimately matters. Friend, will you join me in saying these words, not with your lips, but with your heart.? Do you need a radical readjustment to your perspective?
