defining the problem

It occurs that many people may be ignoring God because they think He is irrelevant.
To them, God doesn't seem to play a role in their daily life. The routine of their lives may seem to be all about relationships and interactions with other people, with themselves, and with various media. When they consider how their lives are may seem that they are doing just fine. The yardstick to measure their life quality may be how it compares with others they relate to, whether people they know directly or people they hear about. On this relative basis they seem to be doing just as well, or better, than others. But when the reality of God is considered and we begin to compare ourselves and our experiences with His ideal and with His design we find that we aren't doing nearly so well. We need to "define the problem" of life in a different way.
The uplook may help us with the inlook and lead to a healthier outlook.
Isaiah 40:26
Look up into the heavens.
Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another,
calling each by its name.
Because of his great power and incomparable strength,
not a single one is missing.
Much joy as this New Year unfolds!
