Ever thought of a piggy-back ride from the Creator of the Universe?
There’s a verse in Psalms that talks about God’s gentleness and humility making us successful. There’s something powerful about the thought of Him lowering Himself in order to pick us up and bring us up to a new level. That’s not pride speaking; it’s not saying, “Look at me, I’m awesome, I’m important, God is lifting me up.”
God is the One choosing to do the lifting. Not me.
It’s not about my merit; it’s about His grace.
“You protect me with your saving shield,
You support me with your right hand,
You have stooped to make me great.” Psalm 18:35 NCV
I wrote a song based on that last phrase, called You Stoop Down. The link brings up a SoundCloud window with the music.
You stoop down to make me great
This I cannot comprehend
God of heaven and of earth
You chose me as Your friend
You stoop down to lift me up
This I cannot understand
Exalted over all the earth
You hold me in Your hand
Jesus the humble King
You gave Your life for me
To give me hope
Now I will sing
Of all You’ve done for me
You stoop down to save the lost
Redeeming people with Your blood
Reaching out to sinful men
To bring us near to God
You stoop down to meet with us
As we sing our songs of love
Simple though our praise may be
It’s You we’re singing of
