"Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high..." (113:5)

God's vantage point? Does He have a "vantage point" or does He simply see everything?

"Who humbleth Himself to behold the things that are in Heaven, and in the earth." (113:6)

Should your thoughts instantly stray into fields in which you might think God can't be present or active or such, try and rein 'em back in for a second. If you don't understand that there is more than one power at work (the other being an awfully confused-looking mess with a cohesive head), then it's easy to either blame God or disregard Him. And now, I feel I've gone on the defensive. Let me start over:

"The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens." (113:4)

And He'll lift you up if you want to see it. It takes time and effort and discipline. But if you must know, humbling oneself--i.e. lowering yourself--enables Him to take notice and therefore lift you up.

"He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That He may set him with princes, even with the princes of His people." (113:7-8)

See, He did everything for us. Scattered the stars where He did and planted us on the firm foundation of His Son. Everything, then, is about enjoying the view through His eyes. But how does one look through God's eyes? I think we know. Love. Compassion. Kindness. Christlikeness in heart and mind. If you endeavor to see the world as does Jesus, even as you live in and among those who may or may not know you, God will show you things. He'll intimate to your heart and mind details that most miss. He'll get you up in the middle of the night to pray. To meet with Him. To touch base and then turn over and go back to sleep. He'll carry you through the clouds and then show you the silver lining for each one.

"Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised." (Psalm 113:1-3)
