Did you ever have an ant farm when you were a kid? Ant farms are made out of two slides of glass with just a very thin layer of dirt. You watch the ants lay their eggs and bustle around doing ant things. But you don’t go down there with them. You’re not involved in their life; you just look at them.
That’s not how God works. He’s involved. He knows how many hairs are on your head. He engraved your name on the palms of his hands. To top it off, in the person of Jesus Christ he became human like you. He doesn’t just watch you—he came to live in your world. How can you not just praise him for that level of commitment? King David said, “I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders” (Psalm 9:1).
God’s Word guarantees that God is engaged in your life. He’s not looking at you like an ant in his ant farm, watching detached and aloof and critical, but he interacts with you as someone he’s connected to by blood. Remember that Jesus ascended into heaven with his body. He is still human, still looking out for you, still crazy in love with you.
