What on Earth
am I doing?
January 15, 2020
What on earth am I doing? Have you ever said or heard this statement before? It is a statement people make when they are needing direction in life. I think we all can relate to this. Sometimes we can feel aimless and without direction in life.
But what if we lived our lives from a divine or heavenly perspective? Satellites rotate around the earth and help provide direction for us by use of a GPS (Global Positioning System) on our phones . GPS enables us to navigate life from a higher or heavenly perspective. It helps us locate where we currently are and provides direction to where we want to go.
Life is about seeing things from God's perspective and aligning with His direction and ways. We need not only sovereign perspective but situational clarity along our journey in life. Is there an area of your life you are currently needing direction? When we're searching for answers we need a heavenly perspective.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
In the news this week it was reported that a high school student discovered a new planet while working as an intern at NASA. Wolf Cuker, a New York teen discovered what has been called TOI 1338 b. The plant is so new it doesn't have a name yet just a scientific number! It's around 6.9 times larger than the earth and lies in a solar system approximately 1300 light years away. A 17 year old high school student discovered something new because he chose to look up to the heavens.
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands."
What a great lesson for us! Let's look up and observe what God has created and discover what he's doing. Let's lift our eyes and get a heavenly perspective so we can discover for ourselves "What on Earth am I doing."
Living from a Heavenly Perspective,
