Psalm 18:19a "The Broad Place"

"He brought me forth also into a broad place;" Psalm 18:19a

The confines of my small claustrophobic self-absorbed narcissistic world. The ever decreasing borders of my tiny universe with my plans, my goals, my dreams orbiting around self-driven desires and wants. Turned in on myself with self-rule, self-reign, self-supremacy, self-sovereignty. I have built my own throne to my tiny kingdom, a tiny crown, with few subjects who serve my ever-increasing demands. And then my miniature kingdom crumbles as He shows me his. What I thought in myself was great and grand was nothing by comparison. He then brings me forth into a broad place. My world now truly begins to expand. I have now stepped into the wide expanse of the hill-country of God. I now, with eyes turned up and off self, can see for miles. Placed in the open plains with limitless borders there is now freedom to move about; there is elbow room for my soul. The land is vast and beautiful. I love the broad plain.
