Shift: Changing Our Focus to See the Presence of God
By Abby McDonald
If we want to see God in the midst of our struggles, we have to change the way we look for Him.
There is no denying that miracles, answers to prayer and abundant blessings testify to God's presence. When the desires of our hearts are fulfilled, it's easy to see Him. But what about the seasons when He seems invisible? Scripture tells us God never sleeps, but it is easy to feel like He is not attuned to our needs. Shift explores the life-changing truth that when we adjust our lens to focus our eyes on God rather than on what we wish we were seeing in our lives, He reveals Himself to us.
In fact, those moments when He seems invisible to us are often when others see Him the most in us. When Jesus walked the earth, He looked to God for His earthly needs. Jesus had a deep relationship with the Father that fueled His mission, His purpose and His effectiveness. Scripture tells us that we can have that too. But there is a shift that needs to take place in our hearts and minds. No matter our circumstances, we can see God in our lives — right here, right now.
