One of my all-time favorite worship songs is ‘Indescribable.’ I could spend hours listening to it and wouldn’t mind if it would be constantly replaying for a day or 2. So yesterday while I was having my time with God (we call it quiet time or Qt), I came to ponder on His goodness as I listened to Indescribable which led me to these Bible verses:
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? (Psalm 8:3, 4 ESV)
Just a thought, God is into BIG PROJECTS. When I think about the heavens and the sun, and the moon and the stars, the planets, the coastlines and the wonders of the world, the galaxies, how the whales breathe, the ants’ pheromones, the budding tree, evergreens, seasons, sahara and gobi deserts, the deepest trench, meteor showers…
Yet have you pondered on these?
Your muscles, the chemicals that produce involuntary actions, how you were formed, the design of your nostrils. Who would have thought that your skull needs to be just a hollow bone so you could carry your head up, because if it’s all bone it would not be possible to have your head up. Your fingers and phalanges, the purpose of your nails and hairs. The physical is just one facet, yet it brings so much complexities already.
When a baby is born and as it comes out from the mother’s womb, there are valves in the baby’s heart that automatically closes. So that the baby could breath normally outside the uterus, who could have mastered these??
…now this makes me cry…
The creation of God in the physical are big projects- environment and the human body. Yet GOD’S BIGGEST PROJECT is you. Sometimes we feel so small that we feel like God has forgotten us. But God’s project of all time is your heart (internal not anatomical). He wants to be reconciled to you, redeem and restore you.
The song ends this way- “You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same, You are amazing God.”
Everything points back to His Glory. At the end of the day, with all our issues, we point back to a God whose heart is to change you. Then you realize it’s not about you. Then you go beyond your senses. Until you cannot fathom His love. Because He is indescribable. ^_*
