I recently spent hours (seriously) searching for something. It was large and bulky, and I knew where it was supposed to be. Yet for all my searching I just could not see it. Frustrated, I sat and said, “God, will you help me find this?”. My eyes immediately fell upon the item. Right. In. Front. Of. My. Face. I don’t understand how I lost the obvious.
Obvious, yet difficult to see.
How much of our lives to we spend frantically searching, but not finding? We look for items, time, solutions, help. There is a solution, but we often don’t remember it until after we’ve spent our energies searching fruitlessly, tired and confused.
Matthew 6:33 tells us, “What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all these other things you need.” This applies to every aspect of our life. Will He always help us find what we need? Maybe not how we expect it, but it is a guarantee that God’ll set our eyes right where they need to focus.
