30 Days to a New Life
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork” (Psalms 19:1).
In a picture of prayer the subject often looks heavenward as he makes his petition. God is thought to be “out there somewhere.” Truly he is high as the heavens, filling the universe; heaven is his throne and the earth is his footstool!
However, God is not only in heaven, he is on earth. He is vast enough to fill space and personal enough to live within. He is elevated enough to keep you in awe and intimate enough to touch you with love. He has power enough to impress you and grace enough to save you.
The Psalmist said, “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?” (Psalm 8:3,4)
What is mankind? … the object of God’s love and the recipient of his mercies. God was interested enough in humanity to take on skin, involved enough to feel our pain and intimate enough to take the condemnation for our sins. Not only is He, “Our Father in Heaven” but He is “God with us!”
The most pronounced evidence of his personal involvement with His creation is the incarnation, God in flesh, for the express purpose of bringing us back into relationship with him.
