I was awed while watching Jean-Pierre Blanchard paint Roger Federer’s image on a large canvas in four minutes.
As I watched Jean-Pierre begin painting with a few obtuse strokes of his brush, followed by more strokes until an identifiable image began to take shape, I realized that the image we saw only partly on canvas was complete in his mind. It was taking time for us to see outwardly what he already saw in crystal clear detail within.
Then I thought about the Mind of God and how divine plans unfold over time in our everyday lives. At first, what God is doing through us may not be apparent at all. We may even wonder, “What the heck is God doing?” But with patience, more of the divine plan becomes apparent over the days and months, just like more of the artist’s vision becomes apparent over time as he completes his painting.
So, if you’re worried about what God is doing in your life today, don’t be. The divine Mind sees the complete picture before anything even begins. It’s the human sense of things that grasps it in degrees and over time. With patience, the divine plan becomes increasingly visible until there is a full-fledged manifestation of some type of goodness tailored just right for you. And what God saw all along, you finally see in its full glory too.
