Insert the God Filter

You have them. Your closest friend has them. In fact, everyone you know has them. They’re filters, and they determine how you see, experience, feel and make sense of your life. You have all kinds of filters that include things as diverse as your political ideology, how you feel about yourself and your understanding of God. And what makes it challenging is that it’s not always easy to identify which filters you have in place at any given time. This is why you need to make it a priority to insert the God filter so everything that happens in your life goes through it. When you do, you’ll be amazed by the reality of God’s amazing grace in everything that happens, have a far more robust faith than you ever imagined possible and become hopeful about the future in spite of what the present is like.
