A One Inch Square Of Light

Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established. -Proverbs 16:3 NKJV

In 2015 I was doing some HVAC work in a church that had just installed a new screen near the front of their sanctuary. The maintenance engineer showed me that the screen was made up of twelve inch square light panels. Each of those squares had smaller squares of light that were about one inch. Sitting back in the pew, the entire screen was vibrant and clear. But if you moved up to within inches of the screen, the whole was broken up by the particulars and you lost all concept of the picture displayed on the screen.

When we bring plans before the Lord, it can look like one inch panels of light. Sometimes it takes weeks before those one inch squares get placed into a foot, and months before the picture is clear enough to see the whole. Proverbs 16 tells us to commit every one inch thought to the Lord. Over time he takes those one inch thoughts and places them in the whole so that we might see the established picture on the screen. Don’t loose heart; if you commit your works to the Lord, he will establish your thoughts!
