It is time to put on your glasses

People wear glasses to see things clearly. If they do not wear their glasses the things that they look at are blurred or can not be seen at all.
Now that you are getting comfortable with praying for yourself, it is time to put on your glasses.
We are not talking about a physical pair of glasses but a symbolic pair of glasses.
You see, the way that we see things and the way that God sees things are totally different.
With our symbolic pair of glasses, we have to see things the way that God sees things.
It's hard, I know, but try.
Put on your glasses and see this:

When situations in your life cause you to fear, put on your glasses and see this:
"For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, "Fear not. I will help you"...Isaiah 41:13

When situations in your life causes you to doubt if you are worthy of Gods mercy, put on your glasses and see this:
"For you Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You"...Psalms 86:5

When situations in your life cause you to feel powerless, put on your glasses and see this:
"He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."...Matthew 17:20

When situations in your life cause you to be angry with someone, put on your glasses and see this:
"But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful"...Luke 6:35-36

With your symbolic glasses on you can now see that you have:
Power
God's Mercy
God's Blessing
God's Protection

With your symbolic glasses on you now see that the World sees things one way but God sees them another way.
