“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.”  Psalm 8:3-5
There are days I want to say many things about God and faith, His grace and mercy and other aspects of this mysterious relationship we have with Him. But I can’t find the words that will adequately express what is stirring in my heart. The more I think about the privilege we have in walking in relationship with Him the more perplexed explaining it becomes.

The words are hard to find because who can explain God? Why is He mindful of us? Why does He want a close relationship with us? His Spirit that lives inside of me works in secret ways that no one else can explain. Not the highest scholar. Not the greatest theologian. Even the psalmist David grasps for words as he searches deep unto deep–trying to comprehend what cannot be understood.

By faith we understand this mystery is the treasure given us by our unseen God. As He lives in us day by day He continually works in us to build the relationship He designed mankind to have with Him – going all the way back to the garden of Eden in Genesis 3 with Adam and Eve. For the rest of the Bible our story unfolds as we see God still pursuing us, always pursuing us.

Instead of falling for the lies of the enemy and reaching for the forbidden fruit, let us reach for the Lord. Let us reach for God so we can walk in the garden in relationship with Him. Let’s reach for Him to know Him more.

Psalm 42:1 “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God.  “

Psalm 42:7-8 “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me—A prayer to the God of my life.”

Thoughts on today’s verse

In a world of startling beauty and a universe of dazzling diversity, our hearts are to be drawn back to the One who made it and now sustains it. He knows us and will help us if we will believe what he has tried so many ways to say: “I love you as my child and I care what happens to you and those you love.”

Prayer:

Almighty Creator, Majestic Architect and Eternal Engineer, it absolutely bewilders and delights me to know that you care for me. With all the things of such vast importance, I find your desire to know and love me humbling and assuring. Today I will worship, work, and witness while being aware of your presence and care. Thank you, dear Father, in Jesus name. Amen.
