What does it say?
God is looking at and paying attention to people. He has a high up perspective that allows him to take action on behalf of people. God helps people in need.
What does it mean?
God is as high up as it gets, but He still cares. He is always with us. Jesus is a help to the hurting. When we fall down, He picks us up and He's always involved.
What does it mean to me?
Life is far from perfect, a lot of times it hurts. When I am in the messiest times of life, when I feel as if I'm living in a "garbage dump" I know that God will lift me up out of the trash. I can get through anything because God is a position to help.
