On a trip to the United Kingdom, our family visited a castle. In the center of the garden was a maze—row after row of shoulder-high hedges—one dead end leading to another. By successfully navigating the labyrinth, you discovered the door to a tall tower in the center of the garden. I just couldn’t figure out which way to go. Then I heard a voice, “Hey, Dad, back up and turn right.” Do you think I trusted her? I listened. It was my daughter calling from the tower. Her vantage point was better than mine. She was above the maze. She could see what I couldn’t!

Don’t you think we should do the same with God? “God is. . .higher than the heavens” (Job 22:12 TLB). The Psalmist says, “The LORD is high above all nations” (Psalm 113:4).

Can he not see what eludes us? Doesn’t he want to get us out and bring us home? Of course he does!
