God is showing you things all the time but you don’t always see them.
Especially if you’ve been walking with God for a while. We tend to “catalog” things according to what we have already experienced.
When you begin to catalog what you see God doing under “things you’ve seen God do”, you can miss the new things completely. They are still happening but you are missing it.
The joy gets sucked out of your relationship with God and you wonder what has happened.
How can it change?
As with all things, begin with a prayer:
“Open my eyes so I can see what you show me of your miracle-wonders. I’m a stranger in these parts; give me clear directions.”
Psalm 119:17 MSG
Ask for God to open your eyes.
Admit that you haven’t been here before.
Even if everything looks the same all around you, it is not.
It is a new day and God wants to do new thing.
Open eyes = joy filled life.
