Oblivious to the Obvious

What we need now is a fresh prospective. In Philippians 4:4-8 we find that God is good all the time. We are to think on His goodness; whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtue, and anything praiseworthy-- think on these things.

II Kings 6:15-23 tells of Elisha servant, he is frightened by the army but Elisha prays to God to open his eyes that he might see that there are more on their side than in the opposing army.

Oblivious means preoccupied, not conscious of your surrounding, just like the old saying, you can't see the forest for the tress. We get to the place that we are so focused on the problem that we can't see the answer. Our problem is just another opportunity to prove God's Word works, a chance for God to show off for us and show us what He can do.

We have just had a major disappointment in our election. So many of us are so focused on what we have lost that we have given up looking for the answer. God wasn't shocked because of the way the election went, we need to stop looking at the fearful economy, at the joblessness, and at the situation with Israel. We need to humble ourselves and pray for our nation and we need to trust God to do the rest. Believe me He has a plan and it will be a good one.

God bless you all.
