02D GOD COMES INTO A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MEN
Does this mighty God have time to notice us? Listen to His message to us through an ancient writing: "For thus says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and humble spirit." Isaiah 57:15*
Wonder of wonders, the God who made the universe and all things in it comes into a <i>personal relationship</i> with men. He dwells with anyone who has a humble heart. He has instructed us to call him <i>our Father.</i> He has told us that He knows all about us, even to the number of hairs on our head. He knows our thoughts, our sorrows, and our joys. He hears us when we cry to Him for help. He wants to take our hand in His and lead us through life.
Deep within every human heart is a longing for God. WHen a man responds to this longing and finds God, there is no longer a doubt in his mind about God, for the great Creator-God satisfies every <i>need and longing</i> of the human heart. He gives a new outlook, new motives, new joys to all who are willing to receive Him.
Look up, friend, and you will see a Father God looking down at you in love.
