As we were driving back home I had Rick stop and take this picture from the mountain. When we walk or drive down the streets of our town, we're only able to see a small area around us. Things look so different from this higher perspective. The entire region is displayed, appearing small and yet vast all at once.
What would it be like to have God's view of things? He can focus in with laser accuracy on the finest detail yet never lose sight of the big picture. He can keep the entire world in balance while still knowing each and every hair on my head.
I often pray that I would be able to see through His eyes, but somehow I think the enormity of that kind of vision would be far too much for us to handle.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV
