Close to God's heart

David reminded the people of Israel that even though they had drifted from God, that they still had a special place in God's heart. Looking at this Psalm, we see how David expresses this to the nation:

Psalm 148: 14
"And he has raised up for his people a horn,
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.”

The word 'horn' in this verse could also mean, 'strong one' or 'king'. God raised up his Son, as the strong one/King that they desperately needed. 

Jesus comes to be our strong one too, no matter how far away from God we feel. This is the Good News that we long to hear. And the reason God does all of this, is because .... we are close to God's heart!

May this knowledge sink deep into our spiritual memory. There may come a time when we really need to remember this.

Live in God's grace
