Sometimes I think we make God out to be very small. When life gets challenging, we inadequately fill in the gaps with ourselves rather than relying on our Heavenly Father to step up to the plate. That's the trap Abram fell into when he when he told Pharaoh that Sarai was his sister and not his wife. The situation was beyond Abram's control, and rather than trusting an enormous God to step in and fix the problem, he took it into his own meager hands. How is it that a person who had trusted God so faithfully before found himself in such a mess? He lost perspective. When we lose perspective, we face the same thing. It is having God's perspective in a situation that makes all the difference.
You are here: / / What is your perspective? (Genesis 12-15)
