The Difference Between How and Who

We can easily get caught in wondering about HOW a situation will work out.  This type of wondering will often lead us down many dead ends.  Whenever our hope is placed in HOW something will work out, it will probably lead to a hope deferred and a sick heart. 

HOW ever, we can look at things from a different perspective and it will make all the difference for us.

For example - move the W from the end and place it in the front and you will get

WHO instead of HOW

Wondering about the WHO of our situations is far better than wondering about the HOW of them.  When we are properly focused upon the WHO, it will not lead to a dead end- but a glorious life.  

The answer to the many difficulties we face will not come from HOW our WHO will work.

HOW HE does what 
HE does is not 
nearly as important 

Let's beware of getting our minds wrapped up in the wrong order of things.

If our focus is on WHO is with us, we will not fear even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.

I wondered HOW HE would help and my mind became anxious.  I was filled with wonder over WHO my help is and my mind was filled with peace.

“Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.” ~Oswald Chambers

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. "
 Ps. 121:1,2
