Genesis  50:20

“And as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good…”

The best teacher in the world is hunger. The best teacher in the world is cancer. The best teacher in the world is heartache, or brokenness. All too often we tend to coast through life until the bottom falls out. Then we realize that we’ve been living in the power of our own strength and resources. We realize that we’ve forgotten the vertical, which is the reality of God. Vertical people are those for whom God is real. They understand that in the temptations of life, the injustices of life, and even in the exaltations of life, God is at work. Vertical people look up and above, not down and around, because they are focused on the wonderful panorama God provides for those who keep their eyes on Him.

Are you a horizontal person, or a vertical person? If you’re ready for a new adventure in your walk with God, decide today to become a vertical person who seeks God and His perspective in every situation.


Oh Lord hear my prayer. I fall short. My stature is not of tallness  I desire to be tall for you  keep me ever tall, straight,  and looking up.  I am learning from my my love who is a tall vertical man. He honors you in his daily walk. You have sent him to help teach me. Today he needs your help to stand as tall as you want him to be. He accepts your tall challenges and I pray that his day will turn….to all the tall challenges you have before him, because I learn how to be taller and look to only you when he shows me how to-do it better….. for You!
