Did you ever stop to think about the fact that God “knows” every animal, every beast, every creature that crawls on this earth. Even the sparrow . . . His eye is on each one. Take a moment before you continue reading, and consider what it means that He is more than simply aware of all the life on this planet, He “knows” everything that belongs to Him.
“I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.” (Psalm 50:11)
Yes, we serve an awesome God, a God who is too difficult to comprehend. But what warrants even further consideration is the fact that if He knows every creature upon the face of the earth, how much MORE intimately He knows us. He has invested so much into our lives; we have to understand that His concern for us goes far beyond what it does for the rest of creation.
Mankind was created to be a praise to Him, created to bring Him glory, created to worship Him. All that, yet with a will of our own to make the choice. Will we be a praise to Him on this earth? Will we bring Him glory in our lives? Will we worship our Creator? Consider the difference between the angelic host and mankind. When man begins to praise the Lord, to bring Him glory and to worship Him, He stretches out His arms and clears the throne room to make room for us to come into His presence. While the throneroom is filled with angels praising Him day and night before His throne, they are secondary to one soul offering up a heartfelt word of praise. The Lord longs for and glories in the praise and worship of His people far above the worship of His angelic beings; it thrills His heart when we CHOOSE to praise Him!
He’s already there waiting to hear you. Go ahead and praise Him, glorify Him and worship Him. Open your mouth and your whole heart. Pour out your praise to the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords—the Majestic One who gave His all for you.
Father, thank You for loving me and knowing me more than I could ever hope to comprehend. I am so undeserving of Your great and unmatchable love, but I want to love You in return. Lord, I pray You will give me a greater revelation of Your love for mankind through Your Word and through intimate time spent in Your presence. I want to know You more. I want to love You more. The greatest thing in all my life is loving You…Amen!
