February 12: Knowing God – Transcendence and Immanence

Transcendence: “to exist above and independent from; to rise above, surpass, succeed.”

Immanence: “refers to His presence within His creation”

God transcends creation – He exists in Heaven. But He cares about man – lowlier than the angels (Hebrews 2:7). He wants to know you!

Sometimes its intimidating to enter into His presence. He knows everything you’ve ever done wrong. He’s serious about sin. He is Holy. But He wants to dwell with you!

Talk to Him today and invite Him to dwell with you.

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Isaiah 57:15

That sounds a little familiar – God wanting to dwell with us? Yes He does! He renewed that promise in the New Testament!

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20
