High and Lifted Up

"In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple."
Isaiah 6:1

It's impacting to see how Isaiah described His vision of the Lord. He saw the Lord sitting on His throne, which is "high and lifted up". This description clearly gives the significance that God is exalted above everything. He is in control, looking down. He is above all and what is happening below does not affect who He is or change Him.

I believe this description is so great because it allows me to see the Lord as being in control, and if He is then I do not need to be anxious or worry about circumstances; because my faith is in the Lord and not on what is happening around me.

Today lets see the Lord "High and Lifted Up" and His train filling the temple.

Thank you Father that You are in control and nothing takes you by surprise. Let me see You as You are, exalted above everything else. I praise You, in Jesus name. Amen.


  1. Good word Phillip! May we always see the Lord as "High and Lifted Up"!
