God’s Perspective

From Psalm 8:4-6:  “What are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?  Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor.  You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet.”

People judging people each day

Empty, hurtful words hunting prey

 

Frozen in polarizing world

Harshest, cruelest comments unfurled

 

Selfish thoughts swarm to harm and crush

Discolor with darkest paintbrush

 

Critique our words and appearance

One voice moves their disappearance

 

Self-esteem sinks in stormy seas

Rising up with God’s gentle breeze

 

God’s perspective always matters

His truly counts, others scatter

 

Listen to Father in Heaven

Divine thoughts arrive to leaven

 

Life’s identity rests with God

Truest actions, never be flawed

 

Hear marvelous news from above

God values us, unselfish love

 

Always, always remember this

God’s perception, never amiss

From Psalm 8:1-2:  “Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  You have set your glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.”

  1. I’ve noticed these attitude changes as well. Everyone looks down trodden. Even when leaving church services they aren’t lifted up. Our fear is getting the best of us and fear leads to anger, frustration and fear. Those lead to acts of violence and hatred and the problem doesn’t get better. It seems to spiral out of control. Our only hope lies in the Lord. If we call on His name He will answer. His love is all enduring.

  2. So much is changing and I feel belief’s are changing due to these theories that people come up with. As Christians, we are not the judge the unbelievers that is for God. But for brothers and sisters in Christ, we are to be there for one another and keep ourselves grounded in God.

  3. As a Pastor from time to time I pray I see God’s perspective with someone’s problems; I also often in counseling ask if my interpretation of what’s going on has anything I might have missed that changes my view of their problem or situation.
