Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,
on the heavens and the earth?
Go out into a grassy field
Look up into the night sky
See the stars that twinkle
Can you fathom their height?
Stand upon the shores of
Oceans blue and strong
The sands beneath your toes
Can you count the grains of those?
In the vastness of horizons
Where waters meet the heavens
There is a solemn Presence
Can you feel majesties pull?
And within that reverent moment
When stars twinkle, sands overwhelm,
Horizons cover like blankets
Grace reaches inside, spills peace,
Where only His love can abide.

Have you ever heard this joke?
“What are you looking at?”
“I’m looking at you, looking back at me, looking back at you, looking back at me.”
I kind of had to give pause reading these verses in Psalms because they remind me of that joke. Read it slowly.
“Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?”
God, our Father in Heaven, who is seated on a throne more royal and beautiful than any throne we can ever imagine — get this — actually looks down on us and watches us.
WOAH! To Him, we are not just little ants down here hoarding food in caves under the ground. We are His creation and He not only thinks about us, but He watches us from His mighty place in the heavens.
I am not worthy of this. Yet, I am so grateful for His love for me. For all of us.
In Matthew 6:25-34 Jesus tells us not to worry. Why? Because our Father in Heaven has given us everything we need to survive in life. Jesus explains to us that we are more important to God than the birds of the air, or the lilies of the fields. So why should we worry about what we will eat or drink or the clothes we will wear?
God is looking down on us to make sure He can provide for us every single day. The air in our lungs is filled by the very breathes of Him. How special is that?
So, while I lay upon the grass staring into the midnight sky, or I stare out the window into the blue heavenlies, I can think about my Lord. The One who gives me life. I can praise Him and consider His love for me.
And while I’m looking up at Him, He’s looking back at me. Smiling. Letting me know He hasn’t forsaken me, and He loves me with an everlasting love.
When was the last time you looked up into the Father’s face?
From My Heart to Yours,
