Did I over-do it? Ok, maybe a little. But sometimes it really does seem like everything that can go wrong does. So how do you respond? The word perspective comes to mind.
Listen to what the psalm writer did in Psalm 121:1-2, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”
Lifting up your eyes to the mountains is to focus on something massive, enduring, and truly great. And God made them! Just think – the God who shaped and formed the mountains holds you in the palm of His hand!
Go outside and look up at the moon and stars. The God who spoke the heavens into existence and calls the stars by name is the One who watches over you every moment of every day.
Look in the mirror and consider the hairs of your head. God knows their exact number. Run a brush or comb through your hair a few times. The data bank of heaven does an instant recalculation. This is the God who knows all the personal details of your life.
Perspective reminds us that God is BIGGER than all the things that can go wrong. When you are having “one of those days,” just lift up your eyes to the God who made heaven and earth. He sees, He knows, and He cares!
