By: A~Z Hubbard, SAVED News Editor-In-Chief — “Cannot see the forest for the trees” is a phrase we use so many time, but what does it truly mean? Well, in essences it means becoming so involved in the details we overlook the solution. When problems and/or situations arise it is important to look at the details; however, it’s more important to find the solution.
Case in point, I recently experienced a situation where I busied myself with the details. I tolled, was restless, researched, and did everything I could think of busy working the details until I came to my wits end. Still after no resolve, I did the one thing I should have done first, I sought God and His will for the situation. He brought me into a place of rest and opened my eyes where the trees disappeared and He showed me the forest, i.e., the solution.
After thanking God for His mercy and loving kindness; I kicked myself, asked for forgiveness for not seeking Him first and repented.
Yes, we know we are to seek God first; but sometimes our flesh rise up and we feel that we have the answer. I know you have experienced this many times also and I can hear the Amens as I type.
But hold up, there’s another part of seeking God, it’s His ‘righteousness,’ and AFTER that ALL things are added. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
So not only did I need to seek God, I had to seek His righteousness, only then did He not only open my eyes so I could see the forest; He gave me a strategy of abundance.
This is to encourage you that as you go through your day-to-day dealing with situations and/or problems, yes seek God, but don’t forget about His righteousness. Then you will walk in abundance of God; as you experience ALL things added to you. Now the “Amen Corner” can say Amen.
