Psalm 138 - Though Exalted

I love this verse because it says again one of the great wonders of God:

6 Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar. 

I've always thought this - and mention it often in worship - that it is amazing that the great God of the universe, the Creator of all things, the One exalted above all things would reach out to us in love! That He would offer Himself just so He can have a relationship with us.

That's amazingly awesome!

I read an often quoted saying today that in all other religions man tries to reach God, but in Christianity we see that God reaches down to us. (I'm not sure I quoted it exactly correct, but you get the point.)
