Heaven Fall Down

We’re crying out in desperation
Waiting now in expectation
We’re crying out in desperation
For You

Have you ever been to an event of some kind, perhaps a concert of your favorite band, and you ended up getting terrible seats or viewpoint?  You look and look but you just can’t catch a good view of the event. Or maybe you didn’t have enough money to drop on amazing seats. Isn’t it such a bummer that though you made an effort, you just could not get in the right place at the right time.

Last week, I got the opportunity to go to disneyland and stayed late enough to watch the show, Fantasmic. I have never seen it and was really excited about watching it for the first time. Needless to say, it was a great show, but from where I was standing,  I didn’t get to see everything. And that bothered me a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but the bottom line truth is that if I was front and center, I could experience the absolute best the show had to offer.

Our walk with God is very much like this. While God is amazing and infinite in majesty and power, we are still finite and often times lose focus and perspective on all that God has to offer, all that God has to say about life, love, and purpose. My experience at disneyland was a beautiful reminder that before the great might of God, I need to position myself at a vantage point that will allow me to receive the most and best God has to give me today.

And how do we go about achieving this?

I believe it all starts by coming to God in a fashion that is described in the bridge of “Heaven Fall Down”. If we take a posture of desperation, we are acknowledging that God is everything we need to survive, everything we need to live, move and breath. If we truly do this, we are telling ourselves and others around us that God is the source of our very survival and the source of our thriving. Then and only then will our hearts go to Jesus in a way that He can work best in. And my friend, He will work His best in you, if you submit and hunger for all He has to offer. Expect greatness from Jesus. He has proven himself already to us by dying on the cross. From this vantage point, all you can see is the beauty of Jesus and cross. And it is going to change your life.

Be Blessed my friends.
