Bible Reading: 1 Kings 7-8; Psalm 11


27 “But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built! 28 Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, O LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day. 29 May your eyes be open toward this temple night and day, this place of which you said, ‘My Name shall be there,’ so that you will hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place. 30 Hear the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive.  1 Kings 8:27–30


The heavens cannot contain God and yet he will hear and act on the prayer of a single person!


There is never a time when we should think that God doesn’t know exactly where we are, what we’re doing and what we need.


Lord, I thank you that you hear my prayers and that you care for me.  Knowing that the heaven can’t contain You, but that you never lose track of me is the greatest comfort.  Amen
