When surrounded by muck, it is all too easy to think there is nothing but muck, everywhere permeating, all consuming. It promises to over-run, to crush, to smother, to destroy...You find yourself laying at night exhausted yet eyes wide open, thoughts tumbling one upon another. It seems to grow like a mushroom cloud promising destruction and devastation. You finally fall asleep only to wake up to yet another day where muck rules the day...again.
So what benefit is it that our Creator is bigger than the muck? The benefit is that He has a view that is much greater than ours. He has given us a glimpse of what it is like to have His view when we climb a mountain and see the valley below, above the stream, above the trees, above the hills. His view is far greater than ours. With this clarity we can step back away from the muck, to a higher place and see that the muck may actually only be small in size.
