There are hundreds of pubs all over England called The Royal Oak. Centuries ago (i think 17th), a king of England had to flee from rebel enemies pursuing him. After a time of not knowing where was the best place to go for safety, the king remembered that "people so rarely look upwards". (People generally search left, right, forward, back, down, do the hokey cokey & turn about, here there & everywhere except up. Looking up just isn't human nature. So up is probably the least likely place anyone will look). So the king climbed up a nearby oak tree and hid among the leafy branches. The rebels pursuing passed by underneath, they failed to find him, because true to form, they did not look up.
We rarely look up. It isn't human nature.
We may be amazed at what we find, when we do look up, into heavenly things above.
Like, an even smarter King. The King of Kings & Lord of Lords. Who promises that He rewards us when we earnestly seek.
