PrayFit Devotional: Higher Ways; Mar 3, 13; Read: Isaiah 55
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” –Isaiah 55:9
You’ve more than likely heard the story about the eagle and the chicken where an eagle, equipped with an eagle’s heart, body and wingspan lived and ate with chickens. Because he lived with chickens, he believed he was one. The eagle looked up and saw another eagle flying, but didn’t realize that’s where he belonged. Versions of the story vary, but the message is clear: an eagle can’t fly if he lives like a chicken.
I thought of that story when I had a workout session inside an altitude chamber. As you may or not know, training at altitude helps you better perform at sea level. The more time you spend up high, the better you perform down low. As a physiologist, that makes good sense to me, but as a Christian, it points me in the right direction: higher.
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
Look full in His wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
in the light of His glory and grace.”
Let that be our faith perspective this week. Train high, live low. Look up and do more than believe. –Jimmy Peña
