look over their heads

Psalm 46:10 (JDV)

Psalm 46:10 “Stop your fighting, and realize that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the land.”

look over their heads

Fear causes us to turn on each other, and before long that fighting escalates and it it hard to see anything else. This psalm — the inspiration of Luther’s “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” — was written in that context.

We need that message today. We need to learn to look over the heads of those with whom we have conflict, to see God’s smiling face. If we can hang on to the reality that our God is higher than our conflicts, bigger than our fears, then we can get the strength to forgive, to cooperate, and to enjoy our differences instead of attacking one another.

Lord, give us the wisdom to look over the heads of our enemies, and see your smiling face — drinking in your peace.
