Like dimples on the ground

I once took a plane ride from Denver CO to Ontario CA. It was a very eye opening ride, as the climb to cruise altitude gave me a unique perspective on the Rocky Mountains. Once you climb high enough, those mountains that look so imposing from a car on I-70 in the middle of them end up looking like dimples on the ground.
People who grow in their faith do so because they lift ever harder prayer requests and they see ever greater answers. The history of the answers gives one the confidence that the issues facing believers are just some more mountains to climb in faith. But arenít we ever smaller ants in the face of the mountains we face? Looking thru a prayer list is like driving among the highest peaks in the Rocky Mountains.
But the act of prayer puts our issues in the hands of the maker of the mountains. We get elevated to high flying altitudes when we lift up the problems because we assume the perspective of the One we hand them to.
Philippians 4:7 helps out with this because it addresses the stress associated with the problem. Once the pain is lifted, our spirits soar, and the mountains we feared and felt intimidated by end up looking like dimples on the ground. This all takes time to do. A lot of time has to pass, and the mountains change from the Rockies to the Himalayas! But we still fly over em.
Tell me what you think, Iím just thinkin out loud!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I agree this would make a great devotion. It was very inspiring to me. I often fear leaving the ground so to speak. This article helped me realize I need to get up and out there to soar. Thank you.

I enjoyed reading this and appreciate the reminder that what appears larger than life to US, is insignificant to Jesus. Bless you for sharing.

This is a great analogy - and a needed reminder of God's perspective on our difficulties as opposed to our own. Thank you so much for this.
