For the Lord is high above the nations; his glory is higher than the heavens.
Who can be compared with the Lord our God, who is enthroned on high?
He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth.
He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump.
He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!
He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother.
Praise the Lord!
- Psalm 113:4-9 (NLT)
How high is high? The average distance from the earth to the moon is 238,857 miles.
This is the farthest men have traveled. No wonder no one can be compared to God.
The Psalmist says that far below Him rest the heavens and the earth.
He is that high, but comes to us because He loves us.
Father, I confess that at times I've failed to remember how big You are.
When I consider the magnitude of You and remember that You love me in my frail condition, I become overwhelmed. You take those whom the world classifies as nobodies, and make them princes.
