From My Quiet Time This Morning

"From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind, from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth-- he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do."
Psalm 33:13-15

This verse was a comfort to me this morning... the reminder that God is watching over us all, considering our actions, knowing our hearts more intricately than we do. Because I think you can take that in a negative way-- He is sitting up there watching us mess up and waiting to zap us for it-- or you can take it in an encouraging way: He formed our hearts. He knows our weaknesses, our struggles, our shame, our insecurities. He sees the battles we quietly face each day and He, who knows us so intimately, takes it all into consideration as He watches us go about our daily lives. Not that He overlooks sin but He sees us through His amazing love, grace and mercy. I hope that visual of Him watching over you, knowing you intimately, and considering everything you do is a comforting reminder to you today. It was to me!
Pin It!

Not only did this bring comfort to me, it underlined my own quiet time this morning. God is so big....much BIGGER than our finite minds can even imagine. Yet, He bends down to us with a listening ear and a loving heart that holds much greater love than we can fathom. Today I have just been in awe of His wonders. In much humility I have to respond with a quivering, "...thank You, Jesus."
