Many times we can see things one way and be frustrated by what we see. But someone from another vantage point sees the same situation from a completely different perspective. When you look at your lives do you see good or do you see bad?
When a lame man was sitting next to a pool looking for someone to put him in the water to receive his healing. Jesus saw the man and asked, "Wilt thou be made whole?" Jesus is asking us the same question to us. Do you really want to be healed? Then Jesus says to the man "Arise, take up thy bed and walk" the man immediately got up and walked away healed from his lifelong infirmity. John 5:1-9
Jesus looking at that man saw his situation from a different vantage point. The man saw his affliction, Jesus saw his deliverance. If we could just change our vantage point we could be healed from the afflictions that we are in. Jesus is standing over us waiting for us to "Arise" (change our vantage point) and receive our deliverance.
I want to encourage you to change from your natural vantage point and turn your heart to Christ that you may arise to His vantage point.
In Him we move, live and have our being. Acts 17:28
Naturally, our circumstances may seem hopeless, but in Christ, we find hope that overcomes all circumstances. Change your vantage point. It will change your life.
