May 30 2017 – A God who is high and shares His high position with us.

Psalm 113 verses 4-8 say:

The Lord is high above all nations,
His glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God,
Who dwells on high,
Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?

He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
That He may seat him with princes—
With the princes of His people.

In these verses we’re told of God’s high position. His high position of virtue, holiness, wisdom, strength, wholeness, health, freedom and glory. Yet He is by no means a God who is aloof in His high position, giving no consideration to His creation in its position below Him.

No He is a God as verse 6 says who humbles Himself, who looks down and comes down from His high position, to share His position and vantage point with us. As verse 7 says, He does it for the lowest of the low, the poor and needy, raising and lifting them up, up towards Him, up in the direction of His own high desirable position.

We serve a God who’s heart is always to take things up, including us, to improve our state and position, a God who is high and shares His high position with us.
