Often the greatest change we need in life is a change of perspective. When we see things in a different light, with a new set of eyes, life often improves dramatically.
In the Bible, we find a man named Saul of Tarsus. When we’re first introduced to him he’s a Christ hater. He persecuted Christians with intense zeal. He was determined to stop this Jesus movement, stamping out its message of the Messiah.
Then something incredible happened. One day, as he was on the way to arrest Christians into Damascus, Syria, everything changed. The Bible describes this moment in Acts 9:3-5 (NIV) “As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?’ ‘Who are you, Lord?’ Saul asked. ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied.”
Although physically blinded by this encounter with Jesus, Saul’s spiritual eyes were opened. He had a new view! It changed everything about his life and his future!
Is it possible that you need a new view of something in your life? Ask God to help you see from His perspective. His view is always the best view!
