An Amazing View

Recently, I was looking up directions online to the location of a portrait studio. It is amazing that today, from our homes, we can use Google to view any place in the world. Try it: try looking up the location of a friend or relative out-of-state, or somewhere across the globe (like Africa). Satellite images can show roads, landmarks, and buildings. You can even choose whether you view the image as the bird’s eye view or street view.

It can be quite a view, but only a small taste of how the Lord must see our world.

The psalmist celebrated God’s view by writing these words, “The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men… He considers all their works … The eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.” (Psalm 33:13-19)

The Lord views us with His heart of love as He considers who we are and what we do. The Bible reveals that He longs for us to trust Him and follow His way. We are never out of God’s sight, and He keeps a close eye on everyone whose hope is in Him.

For all who know the Lord through faith in Jesus Christ, it’s encouraging to realize that every day we’re part of His amazing view.

Your righteousness is like the great mountains;
Your judgments are a great deep.
