In the Perspective

Re: Verse reading–Revelation 15 and 16 (day four)

It all depends on your point of view.  Each of us looks at life through different filters.  The experiences of our lives…the relationships we have…the focus of our spiritual eyes…all of these affect how we interpret or respond to the events of our life.  The angels were intent on serving and obeying the Lord.  When they saw God’s hand of judgment, they rejoiced!  It was about time!  Verse 16:5 says they called God holy because He delivered judgment.  “They deserved it,” they said.  The men under judgment experienced the same events and they blasphemed the Lord.  Same event, different perspectives.

How do you respond to the events of your life?  Do you look to see what God is seeking to accomplish through the trial, or test, or even, victory?  If we look through our Holy Spirit filter, we will be able to comprehend the confusion and confliction of today’s world.  Will we thank God for the good and the bad things in our life or will we blaspheme His name.  It’s all in the perspective…and the obedience!
