Most of us are being quarantined at home, void of the very things which have distracted us, from knowing who we really are within ourselves.
We've been made comfortable with uninterrupted lifetimes of being identified for the most part by our job title, by the hobby we enjoy or by the skill we are talented in. But now, here we are placed involuntarily into a position and a moment in life where we have been required to be face to face with ourselves, finding out what we're really all about, minus everything outside of us. And for many, it might just possibly be the only time in life where we've had to rely on God for our safety, peace and provisions while searching Him out for answers unlike any other time before.
Yes, we are seeing an economical reset taking place, as well as a political reset. (In saying that, I also want to point out that our ideas of what a reset looks like are not always the reality of what they show themselves to be - or as what the overall process proves itself to be.) More than either of those resets I just mentioned, God has been speaking to me about a heart reset that is His desire for ALL people to allow Him to do at this time. It doesn't matter how close or not so close our walk with Him has been, we ALL need and have been given a divine opportunity to take a deep, deep evaluation of our heart of hearts that only we alone with God can truly see. No one is excluded.
Yesterday I went on a walk and prior to leaving the house to venture out I had a sense that I was to go my usual path but walk it in the opposite direction of what I normally do. In the course of this walk, the Lord began to bring awareness to me of how differently the scenery looked with walking the same path but by merely viewing it from a different angle. I saw the same houses, the same trees, the same everything but by a different perspective, if you will. I noticed things that I'd never noticed before when I was limiting myself to walking the same direction repeatedly. The same path felt like an entirely new one just because I was seeing it all from a different perspective.
God is telling us to view this time in our lives from a different angle. Rather than seeing it through all the void of activities or focusing on the lack of our usual normalcy, let's view it as a gift from God for a time to search our own hearts and allow Him to reset our hearts and minds and to adjust our perspectives from what in the past we've deemed as so highly important to what we by His standards should now view as highly important.
Remember, the same path looks much differently when viewed from a new perspective.
Isaiah 55:8-9 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways", says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts."
