“God sits above the circle of the earth.
The people below seem like grasshoppers to him!
He spreads out the heavens like a curtain
and makes his tent from them.”
Isaiah 40:22 NLT
One of the first things in my morning routine is to open the curtains and all the blinds. At the trailer, it takes me much longer than at home to open the blinds and curtains because almost every wall is covered in windows. I do it because, I love light. Even with the increased amount of window coverings at camp…
Opening The Curtains Is One of The Easiest Things I Do All Day.
When I was reading this verse in Isaiah last week the third line jumped off the page. I re-read the verse and thought about what it was really saying. God is so big that He’s sitting above the earth and when He looks down at us we’re like grasshoppers in His sight.
We’re so small…God’s so big!
Isaiah then writes about how God spreads out the heavens like a curtain and makes his tent…the place where He lives…from them.” So, God creating the heavens takes as much effort for Him as it does for me to open the curtains in the morning. Think about that. When you understand what this verse is saying, your problems should seem small to you. What issue could you have that would be too difficult for a God who exerts this kind of power?
is too great for our God,
who opens the heavens like He’s opening the curtains.
I challenge you to add something to your morning routine. As you open the curtains and let the light in, declare “My problems are easy for God to handle.”
Father…I thank You for being who You are! You are all powerful. No matter how big the problems in my life may seem, NOTHING is too difficult for You! Help me to keep this perspective as I face the trials in my life. Let me apply the truth of Your Word to my situation and walk the confidence of Your character. In Jesus Name…Amen
