Thus said the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build to me?…
That is an excellent answer which was given by a poor man to a sceptic who attempted to ridicule his faith. The scoffer said, "Pray, sir, is your God a great God or a little God? The poor man replied, "Sir, my God is so great that the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him; and yet He condescends to be so little, that He dwells in broken and contrite hearts. Oh, the greatness of God, and the condescension of God!
( C. H. Spurgeon.)
