‘…Until I entered the sanctuary of God. Then I saw the whole picture: ..’ – Psalm 73:15-20 MSG
This is easily one of my favourite psalms. It covers four basic elements:
- Prosperity of the wicked.
- Poverty of the righteous.
- Presence of God.
- Picture of God’s mission.
At the heart of this psalm is this one sentence.
In the midst of the prosperity of the world’s so called heroes and the poverty of people who are faithful to God- one is confused on what to do.
The psalmist does one key thing: He enters the presence of God and then everything changes. In the presence of God, He sees the full picture of God’s overall mission.
Nothing that anybody does can stop God’s plan for the world and for us.
Today regardless of what we face, ONE STEP into God’s presence will change everything. You see things as God wants you to see. You sit and watch God’s ultimate plan.
This is one step out of my box of limitations and narrows perspectives and into God’s unlimited horizons.
Today you and I are just one step away from change. Are we ready to make that plunge into God’s presence?
This weekend, at RAVE 2017, the annual youth fest for our church, our prayer is that the young generation of our city will take this ONE BIG STEP out of the box into God’s magnificent Mission.
