The God who stoops

“God gets down on his knees among us, gets on our level and shares himself with us….

“God enters into our need, he anticipates our goals, he ‘gets into our skin’ and understands us better than we do ourselves…

“A book on God has for its title¬†The God Who Stands, Stoops, and Stays. That summarizes the posture of blessing: God stands — he is foundational and dependable; God stoops — he kneels to our level and meets us where we are; God stays — he sticks with us through hard times and good, sharing his life with us in grace and peace.” — Eugene Peterson,¬†A Long Obedience in the Same Direction.
