“A Magnificent Vantage Point”

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3, 1 – 2 NIV).

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:6 NIV).


I didn't think that this would be possible, that from one single view point I could overlook Europe's second largest lake. But with God all things are possible, and so our friends took us one day to this specific vantage point in the Swiss Alps. It was located at about 4,500 feet above sea level, and from this point we could oversee the entire lake of Geneva. It was just amazing! We could see the end from the beginning.

We saw the Jet d'Eau – the Water Fountain of Geneva that jets its water up to 459 feet into the air. We recognized towns like Lausanne and Montreux and the Evian les Bains that is located in France. And the icing on the cake was that we got to see Europe's most magnificent mountain, the 16,000 foot tall Mont Blanc. All of this was captured with two eyes, with absolute clarity, from one single vantage point. I'd say that this is magnificent, wouldn't you?!

I was so happy that the LORD gave me the opportunity to experience this magnificent view and I thought about these verses in Colossians and Ephesians and how true they were. This is the position God wants you to take: In Christ you are given this magnificent vantage point and this is when you receive a clear overview of things on earth and in heaven. It’s a place where you gain clarity, authority and sovereignty. Set your heart on Jesus today and take your seat next to Him!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
