Rough estimate, but I saw God at least 3,000 times last week. I was in 3 very crowed airports and spent 3 days on Capitol Hill, which was pretty packed as well. So, my best guess is I saw God at least 3,000 times, but maybe it was well over 5,000.
If you don’t look at another person and see God I suggest you start looking closer. God created each one of us—uniquely but equally. He is in each one of us—uniquely and equally. You’ll start seeing God when you start looking for him—and that starts with other people.
Don’t get me wrong. I was in back of someone who took 10 minutes unloading Fort Knox from his pockets in airport security. I was having trouble seeing God. Equally for the people walking down the plane aisle trying to take my head off with their swinging bags. I don’t always “glow” God. But I remind myself that when I look at others I am staring into the face of God. And God is love, so my thoughts should be about love, not frustration or indignation.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
There was a TV show years ago—Joan of Arcadia—where God spoke to a girl in the form of ordinary people around her. God shows his face to all of us, and speaks volumes, in every person we pass or encounter. God is not one of us, as the song asks “what if?”—God is all of us.
This week see how many times you see God. You won’t see him at all if you don’t look for him. We need to see as God sees.
The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
Have a GREAT week looking at God!
