The Final Picture
By Julie Ackerman Link
Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things. —Isaiah 40:26
God is doing something on a grander scale in the world. He’s the artist who sees the final picture. We’re His “fellow workers” (1 Corinthians 3:9) who are helping to make it a reality. Through the prophet Isaiah, God reminded His people that it is He who “sits above the circle of the earth” and “stretches out the heavens like a curtain” (Isaiah 40:22). We can’t see the final picture, but we continue on in faith, knowing that we’re part of an amazing work of art—one that is being created on earth but will be best seen from heaven.
While sometimes I think I can see the big picture,
Lord, my heart knows it sees so little. I’m
thankful that You are working out Your beautiful
will in this world, and I can trust You.
God is using us to help create a masterpiece.
