Why do people always seem to be negative all the time? They look at their present situation and they only see what is in front of them and it does not look good in their sight. It does not look good because our hearts want the things in life to be good, but because of sin in the world, all we see is bad.
If we look at things from this narrow point of view, things do indeed look bleak. However, there is one element that we have left out of the equation of life, the Lord God. When we have the Lord in our lives, our field of vision becomes expanded.
While things look bad, we can still take joy in them because God can make the worse situation into something that would be for our good. When we are alone in this world, the Lord is there to place His mighty hand upon our shoulder and tell us that He is with us and that we are never alone. Let us stop thinking from a human perspective and start looking at life from the Almighty’s point of view and instead of seeing negativity, we will behold opportunities for Divine Glory for our God.
