I think God has always used other people in my life so that I can know Him better. I can sit across from someone, and see God working in their life so clearly. As they talk about a difficult situations, or doubts, or why God would allow something to happen in their life….I can look at them and have no question as to God being a part of their life. And that God has a purpose, and He is not silent, or angry, or disinterested. As I communicate that to the person, I believe it fully. So, when I look at my own life, why is it so hard to believe that it is the same God? That when I’m confused, or questioning of what He is doing…why can I not see the same God that is in another person’s life? He is the same God, unchanging. I look at my circumstances, or what I’m feeling, and I start to form what I think God based on those. So I have to have these people in my life - I have to have this perspective of a loving God that I see in another person’s life. Because my own doubts, insecurities and weak faith keep me from seeing Him fully.
