“Aim at heaven…” Lewis on perspective and objective.


Aim at Heaven, get Earth thrown in; aim at Earth, get neither. – C. S. Lewis 

With that in mind, begin prayers like this:

“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭57:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.” Psalms‬ ‭97:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Then, the circumstances about which you pray may be seen in proper perspective.

He. 

Is. 

Sovereign.

Thanks be to God.
