Your View Changes Everything {View}

“Then Joshua the son of Nun sent two men as spies secretly from Shittim, saying, “Go, view the land, especially Jericho.” So they went and came into the house of a harlot whose name was Rahab, and lodged there.” Joshua 2:1

 

In chapter 2 of Joshua, he sends two spies to view the land that God had promised to the Israelites. Joshua needed to know what he was up against. I thought about this viewing that they were to do. The reports of whatever they viewed would dictate what Joshua did next.

This holds true in our lives as well. How we view circumstances dictates the decisions that we make. We really only have a few options. We can view situations through our own experiences, the experiences of others or the truth of God’s Word. The first two options only focus on temporary outcomes. They lean toward selfish motives or shallow gain. Emptiness lies in this view. And fear dwells here.

The third option, however, leads to all things good and glorious. When we view situations through His Word…

 

There is a a peace when we don’t understand.

There is a fullness of joy even when everything seems bleak.

There is a hope that rises up even when all appears lost.

There is an increase in our faith to believe God for a miracle.

 

We can make decisions from a place of fear or faith.

Which view do you choose?
