Yes, Terrie. I’m here. Tell Me what’s on your mind today.
Well, God I want to know, what are mere mortals that You are mindful of them, human beings that You care for them; when You have the vastness of the universe at Your disposal?
Terrie, just like I created the universe for My pleasure, I created “man” for My pleasure. When I spoke into nothingness and created something, I already had humanity in mind.
Wow God! That blows my mind. I can’t even fathom such things. Please tell me more!
I AM that I Am and what I do is done for Mine own sake. It pleased Me to fling the stars into the darkness to give light to the night, so that you would have a canopy called the sky. It pleased Me to hang the brighter light; the sun in the sky and call it day to keep the atmosphere warm for you.
Terrie: (gratitude breaks forth in praise)
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. (Psalm 19:1-4 TNIV)
You are truly amazing God, and I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful I know that full well. Your creation speaks to us, telling us of Your existence; Your eternal power and Your Divine nature, but I still can’t imagine why You care enough for us to go to such measures.
That’s because you can’t don’t understand the magnitude or depth of My love for humanity. My love for you is so great that it pleased Me to create the earth teeming with life and vegetation and to make it inhabitable for you, so that you would food to eat and a place to live. My love for the world is so great that I sent My only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross to pay the penalty for humanities sins, so that all of you can live in heaven with Me eternally. Furthermore, because humanity is be born into a fallen world, it pleased Me to establish the government to maintain order in the land so that you can live with some semblance of peace in spite of the fall of mankind.
Terrie: (overwhelming gratitude bursts forth in praise)
God, You rule over the affairs of the whole world! You are Elohim the Creator and sustainer of heaven and earth and all that is therein! You are omniscient: all knowing and omnipotent: all powerful! No one and no thing can withstand You; everyone and everything must bow to You! Hallelujah to Your name God. For You are El Shaddai, The Almighty God!
Yes Terrie, I AM, and it pleases Me to look down from My throne in heaven into the vastness of the world through all nations, countries, regions, states, counties, cities, and townships to see humanity in their secret places praising Me, praying to Me and studying My Word to seek My Face every day as an act of worship!
I created humanity to worship Me in the beauty of holiness and when they humbly come before Me in total dependance on Me; I AM, is well pleased! Mankind may seem small in the vastness of the world I’ve created, but I am mindful of them and care for them because I created them for the purpose of pleasing Me.
I made everything and everyone and all people and all things matter to Me. Humanity matters so much that even the hairs on their heads I have numbered. There’s not a hop from the rabbit that I don’t see nor a chirp from a bird that I don’t hear. Not a tear falls from your eyes without My notice, for nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. I am everywhere at all times and you are never without My presence. I AM is aware of all that goes on in the world. For the earth is Mine and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. I’ve got the whole world in My hands and this pleases Me!
