On a recent plane trip, I was able to capture a few shots out the cabin window. This particular shot is unique as it was so clear; we were flying right over Iceland. You can see the mountain peaks pushing up through the blanket of snow. Here I was, flying 35,000 (or more) feet above these wintery conditions. It was amazing and humbling all at the same time.
In Deuteronomy 4, we read of the promise to the Israelites (as well as us) that the one TRUE God above – watching over us.\
Verses 37 – 40: Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength, to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today. Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other. Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time.
There is no other. I like that. I find comfort in knowing that HE is above and HE is the only one.
