Yesterday we enjoyed a hike up Whiteside Mountain. Along the way we marveled at several breathtaking vistas of Gods magnificent creation. Surrounded by this beautiful scenery, I was reminded again of the greatness of our God.
The scripture tells us that the Lord surrounds us, His children, just as the mountains surrounded us. Our Father wants to give us a glimpse of the greatness that surrounds us and protects us and makes us great in Him. Our lives are filled with many demands, distractions and needs which can cause us to lose sight of the truth that our God remains so much bigger than just our current reality.
If we could just see what surrounds us, the power of what we might be facing would diminish greatly in comparison with His greatness, victory and majesty. He’s bigger than we think He is!
“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”
Psalm 125:2 NIV
