Blinded By My Own Perspective

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! (‭Luke‬ ‭13‬:‭34‬ ESV)

Both of my kids are certified lifeguards. They were trained to recognize the signs of someone who is having trouble in the water, and to respond accordingly.

However, when a person is struggling in the water, they can begin to panic. Often a drowning victim will even fight against their rescuer, instead of allowing him/her to bring them to safety.

Jesus mourned over the people of Jerusalem because they resisted the very Person who was there to rescue them.

I wonder how often I have resisted the hand of God in my life. He is there, ready to do a great work, but I am blinded by my own perspective.

Father,
Please give me discernment to know the work of Your hand in my life, so that I can receive all that You desire to do in me.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
