Themes in Proverbs: God’s Perspective

A few years ago I did a corn maze in Colorado. Like many of these mazes through dried fields of corn stocks there is observation platform. The maze was never difficult but it was always popular for folks to stand on the observation platform and look out over the corn maze. They could see parts of the maze they had not traveled. Some used the platform to find the quickest way out. One thing was for sure, you could see all the possible routes.

Each and everyone of us are in the maze of life. God has the vantage point, He is on the platform.

Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He watches all his paths.

There is not a way we could take in our life that God does not know the outcome. Every turn we might make he knows. Sometimes we feel lost in our lives. We might not know what is around the next corner but God does. He is watching us with love.
