Photo-A-Day: Looking Down

When I look down I see my feet. I wish I were at the top of a mountain or a sky-scraper where the views stretch out for kilometres in every direction. Or even better, up in an aeroplane, above the clouds. I love that kind of high-up perspective. The world seems much smaller from up there.

A similar thing happens in the spirit realm when we worship our Creator. The more we praise, the more we soar in Him, the smaller and more insignificant all our problems become. As He becomes bigger in our sight, all else seems to drop away. The impossible becomes possible.

“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” [Isaiah 40:31 NIV]

Yet, even when I cannot see the world from a great height, but only manage to chance a glimpse of my feet when I look down, I am still reminded of one of the Lord’s promises — that Satan will be crushed under my feet (see Romans 16:20).

What a great promise to have. What do you see when you look down?

  1. Clean floors, as I’ve just vacuumed. 🙂 Even more thrilled to have Jesus deal with the yuck of my life and His cleansing from all unrighteousness. xx
