Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let such as love Your salvation say continually, “The Lord be magnified!” But I am poor and needy: yet the Lord thinks upon me. Psalm 40:15-16a
You are on God’s mind today!!
I grew up in church knowing about God. My impression and thoughts of God were removed, remote focused on his transcendence.
God is certainly transcendent. There are many Scripture that confirm that.
Thus says the LORD: ” Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool.” Isaiah 66:1
But God is not only transcendent. He is also immanent. He is near.
The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. Psalm 145:18
God is not only transcendent, and immanent. He is personal and He relates to each of us personally.
He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. Psalm 33:15
And you are on His mind today.
How awesome is that!
