I recently encouraged my friends and family to watch the "Life in a Day Video". Then later I felt it might be too dark and if I didn't explain my reasoning for promoting it, it would simply be depressing.
I liked it because the depravity in nearly every shot (one way or another), reminded me of God. It so clearly shows our need for a Savior. And it also gives us the slightest impression of what He must see in any one omniscient moment. It reminded me of these verses.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14: Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole [duty] of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.I had a similar, but more uplifting, moment watching Isaac sing with the elementary students in "big church" last Sunday. Isaac was placed on the floor-level (not on the stands), which seemed great at first because I was sitting in the front row and we were practically eye to eye. But there were more kids and they lined them up on the floor level in front of Isaac's row. So Isaac was blocked by two taller kids. I was straining to see him, smiling at him, waving, and blowing kisses, pouring out all my mushy momma-love as I watched him sing. Isaac was lost in the crowd to anyone but me; though he was the smallest and least visible, I had eyes only for him. And that's when I realized that God sees each of us that way ALL the time. We are small and seemingly insignificant, but God sees us with more clarity and love than I saw my son through the crowd. So, twice in a very short amount of time, God has used circumstances to help me see the way He sees ALL the time. Just an interesting glimpse into His omniscience.
