DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH?
The ubiquitous saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words” fits this graphic illustration like a glove. It’s a funny thing. The first time I glanced the photo, I missed the obvious...the graphic view of the ladder. Yet, it was right in front of my eyes. How ironic! Then, I wondered and question after question invaded my space. How many times was there a ladder there for me and the other person did not use it? How many times have I been left in the dark while the person looked the other way? Was I purposely left in the hole? How many times have I thought that I was genuinely being helped only to find out that it was all a pretentious act? Was I left at my lowest point, half clothed like the person in the photo? It became too much! I had to stop the probe of questions! My answers began rapidly flowing. My panacea is faith; mountainous faith at that! What a mighty God we serve, when we are lifted above our circumstances. If I have said this once, I have said it a hundred times. “God sits high and looks low!” What I missed, he saw! Woe to those who thought that they got away!
