“You’re overthinking it!”
We have all been told this.
For some, you may have heard your father yell this at you as ya’ll joined forces to solve a seemingly simple issue.
Or maybe this was a situation you experienced with your significant other as they pace the floor battling a seemingly insurmountable problem.
We have all been there.
When I was young, I had a seemingly insurmountable issue.
My problem was tying my shoe.
We have all been there; however, my young childish mind had a limited perspective keeping me from reaching my goal.
However, it was my uncle that reminded me that I was overthinking it.
He stepped back, showed me again, and voila!
With a different perspective in my grasp, I reached down, did my loops, and tied them.
My perspective was forever changed.
Perspective is an important concept to learn control over.
In a spiritual sense, perspective is just as important.
In order to accomplish our God-given calling, we need to step back from the world and focus our attention to Heaven.
Colossians 3:2 reminds us to,
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
Rely on faith in the glorious hope of Jesus Christ, instead of the illusory solutions that the world offers.
The Word tells us,
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Instead of being one-track minded, let us be three-track minded, deriving our perspective to be on the work of the trinity which is revealed in God’s Holy Word.
When we live by faith, we stop overthinking and start living in grace.
For we know, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
We hope this message enriches,
