My husband loves heights. Mountain tops. Soaring overlooks. Lofty vistas. When we get to any place high, he grabs his camera and races to the edge.
Which gives me a heart attack every time.
If there’s a railing or rock wall, I have no problem. It adds a sense of security. I don’t worry about my husband (or anyone else near the edge) and I’ll confidently walk right up and look over.
Of course, I don’t want to miss the view, either. So, even without a barrier, I will eventually take a fews deep breaths, check my footing and get close enough to take a peek over the edge.
But it definitely takes my breath away.
The view is always worth it. Sweeping valleys. Deep ravines. Spectacular canyons. Something I don’t want to miss. Definitely worth the effort.
As I’m seeking the Lord, what if He wants to take me to new places, new heights, new vistas? Do I hesitate? Do I look to see if its safe? Do I pause to catch my breath or check my footing? Do I consider missing it?
Or do I trust Him and run to the edge to see what He wants to show me?
His word tells me He will make me surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights. (From Psalm 18:33, NLT)
He says when I trust in Him I will find new strength and will soar high on wings like eagles. (From Isaiah 40:31, NLT)
I want to see what He has to show me. Because His majestic name fills the earth! His glory is higher than the heavens. (Psalm 8:1, NLT) His unfailing love is as high as the heavens. His faithfulness reaches to the clouds. (Psalm 57:10, NLT) And when I worship at His throne, He is eternal, high, and glorious! (Jeremiah 17:12, NLT)
