Higher Thoughts

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9, NKJV

Six years ago, my family and I visited the observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York City, the setting where Tom Hanks met Meg Ryan in the film Sleepless in Seattle. Meg was nowhere to be found, but the rest of the world did show up that summer evening. Those long lines meant a wait that eventually paid off with a spectacular view allowing us to see thirty miles in every direction. The cars looked like ants and the people like dots.

Imagine God in heaven looking down upon the Empire State Building. The entire galaxy is only a dot to Him. In true humility, let us surrender our ways and our thoughts to the only One high enough to see and know everything.
