Leaning Down to See

I know I haven't posted much but the Father has been teaching me so much that I have just been soaking it all up. I haven't been able to get enough of Him or His Word. He has begun to change the way I see Him and think about Him and I just can't hold it in anymore!

One of the things, I believe that the Heavenly Father wants to share with many of His daughters today is the sense of His presence and how He leans down to hear us.

Zechariah 3:17

 "The Lord your God is in your midst, a Mighty One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing." 

I have read and memorized this verse, yet it hasn't been until the last couple months that I am understanding what a huge meaning that it has for me, a daughter and child of God. I am one in billions of people on this planet that God created. The God who created the universe, who spoke stars, galaxies, light, and day into existence. Whose voice spoke for the waters to arise and part and for the land to come forth and grow vegetation. The God whose words spoke life into all creatures of the sea, land, and air, and by speaking created our sources of light and darkness. The same God who wanted to bring about human beings that would be made in His image, to create them to rule over the earth and animals that he had created. Genesis 1:26-28 (MSG) tells us that "God created human beings; he created them godlike, reflecting God's nature. He created them male and female..." Do you see what I have read so many times since childhood, yet completely missed? He (God) created us to reflect his nature both male and female!

The God who created everything with just His words wanted to make us - me to reflect His nature and in His image! I just have to sit back and take a deep breath to wrap my mind around that. 

Let's think about this - God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. Omnipotent means that He has the power to do anything, Omnipresent means that He is able to be everywhere at the same time, every one of those he has created he is present with them and is there when they call upon Him. Omniscient means that He knows everything, every thought, every action, & every little thing from the cells in your body to the next place of food and rest for the tiniest of creatures he created. He is so vast & big that he holds everything in the entire universe in his hand. Every galaxy that we can see through a telescope and even the ones we can't see or haven't discovered. Just think for a second the sun, which is the closest star to Earth is 93 million miles away from earth (quora.com). Seriously so the earth is literally like a teeny tiny dot compared to all the other millions and billions of stars out there in the universe. Yet, God sees each one of His creations on earth. 

It is so hard for me to wrap my head around this, yet it is exactly what the God of the universe does for each of us. Zechariah says that the God who created everything rejoices over YOU. You, one person in billions on the planet. He leans down to hear your voice, to hear your cries for help, to hear your prayers, to be present with you so that you can feel His love for you. He not only does all that. Zechariah says that he rejoices over you and sings over you. He wants you to know how much He loves you, that He sees you and hears everything you say and sees everything you do. How Great and Mighty our God is!

Do you believe this today? That the God you may have heard about or even know loves you that much to lend down a listening hear? If not, I would love just to talk to you more or even tell you more. His heart is crying out for his children, He wants His daughters to know Him, to run after Him. He literally has been knocking on the door and just wants us to open it and invite Him in but we have to be willing, He isn't one to force us.
