Isaiah 33:5–6 (ESV): "5 The Lord is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, 6 and he will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion's treasure."
To correctly view the majesty of the mountains one must be brought low. The aerial perspective will make them look smaller than they are. The same truth applies to God. You will never see how majestic He is from an exalted position but when you are positioned low then and only then will you see Him for everything He is.
The people of Judah have lost perspective of who God was because they stopped bowing before Him. They had exalted themselves and became reliant on man and not God. Isaiah declares judgment upon them but also a time when their perspective of God would be restored. However it would come at a cost, Judah would be brought low so God could be exalted before them. He is the only one that could provide peace and prosperity as the protector of His people.
What is your current position before God? Are you viewing Him from Your knees or have you exalted yourself to the place where you have an aerial view of Him? He doesn't look so impressive from that view but if you view Him from a place of humility you will see Him in all His glory. Don't make God bring you low through circumstances. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord! It's the only way to get the right view of God. Don't put this off. Get on your knees and look up and see the majesty of our great God and King, amen?
Father, we thank You that you have made Yourself known to us and how we can best see You for who You are. Forgive us for our pride and arrogance. Keep us humble and dependent on You so we never trust in ourselves or other men. We want to see You for who You are oh Lord, position us for the best view we pray in Jesus name, amen.
