The View From Here Is GREAT! 

OCTOBER 15, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

  The Sears Tower in Chicago, renamed Willis Tower in 2009, is one of the most spectacular buildings I have ever seen. I have had the privilege of flying in and out of Chicago and seeing this building from the air. What a massive structure. I have also been in Chicago, stood outside this very tall building, and strained my neck to try to see the top. From the ground, it even looks bigger. However, the most awesome feeling was riding the super speed elevator inside this building to the viewing floor near the top and looking out over miles and miles. Looking at this building from the outside would have never helped me to know what it was like looking out of it from the inside.

    That is sort how it is with Jesus. Looking at Him from the outside will never replace the view of the world you will have being in Him. Some people try to get ahead of Jesus and are continually asking God to catch up with their ideas and their plans. My friend, trying to get God to follow your ideas is dangerous. Why, well because from time to time He will let you have your way. Usually, your way ends up being the wrong way. On the other hand, some people seem to lag behind Jesus. They never are able to get a vision for the world ahead or the people in it. They just cannot see that far ahead. Therefore, they are always asking Jesus to slow down and sit a spell. Looking at Jesus from the outside, whether ahead or behind, gives you one view of Jesus. However, when you make Him your habitation, the place you dwell, then life starts to make sense. As you let Jesus lead your life and you obey, now instead of leading or following Jesus, you are just going along for the ride. What a new view you can have of the world around you through the eyes of Jesus.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

     I saw a bumper sticker not long ago that said, “Jesus is my Co-Pilot.” Not long after that, I saw another bumper sticker that said, “If Jesus is your Co-pilot, someone is in the wrong seat.” This is so true. Jesus does not desire to be your assistant; He desires to be your LORD.
