Psalm 14:2 (NKJV) 2 The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
Years ago, there was a song that was made popular on mainstream secular radio stations called, “From a Distance”.
The song talked about God looking down and watching us, from a distance.
I haven’t listened to secular radio for more than 25 years. But I had heard of this song when it was popular, and I despised it.
Why? Because it painted a picture of God as some aloof, uncaring figurehead who never interacted with humans, but simply watched from a distance in some strange, warm and fuzzy kind of way.
The truth is, though, that God loves and thrives on His relationship with us.
The verse above tells us that God does, in fact, look down upon us. But not in a disconnected sort of way.
He looks down upon “the children of men” (human beings). And this is where it gets interesting.
Why does He look down upon you and I? To see if there are any who understand, and who seek Him.
This is what God desires; that we seek Him, and that we get understanding about His ways.
And that is the core of our spiritual growth.
If we seek Him, and we get understanding, we will have no choice but to grow and mature.
As we grow and mature, what used to seem illogical and impossible to our human minds now becomes part of our everyday thinking and understanding.
And this blows the warm and fuzzy version of God right out of the water. Wouldn’t you agree?
