Heavenly Perspective

July 02, 2012

O Lord, our Sovereign,

how majestic is your name

in all the earth!

You have set your glory

above the heavens.

-Psalm 8:1

Look up. Lift up your head. Open your eyes and look around you. And praise God.

Of course, that can be a tough thing to do at times. When we focus on the frustrations of life here and now, the pain of fractured relationships past and present, the powerlessness we often feel over our circumstances, the last thing we feel like doing is praising God.

But the psalmist encourages us to let go of all that weight of our existence and look at God. Recognize God's power and authority, God's magnificence and excellence, God's glory and light. God is all, and in all, and over all.

Spend some time praising your Sovereign God today. Maybe your problems will fade just a little bit with a heavenly perspective.
