As you can see in the picture the upper mailbox is totally useless and impractical. It is definitely too high, out of reach to be functional. It’s just something to look at.

Do you think that way about God sometimes? He’s sitting high up in heaven on His throne. He’s way out of reach looking down on us; totally impractical and not functional. He might be good to look at, but that’s it.

If that’s the way you think about God you have a very wrong idea about Him.

In Psalm 139:1-4 Davids writes, “O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue You know it completely, O Lord.”

David also wrote, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling.”  (Psalm 68:5)  Does that sound like a God who is impersonal and doesn’t care? Does it sound like He’s out of reach? No! God does care. God does hear us. God is not a trophy on a pedestal just to look at. He is someone who wants a relationship with each of us. Out of reach? Not our God.
