When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? – Psalm 8:3-4
When we look at the vastness of God’s creation, the thought that God would actually be mindful of us in the midst of it seems egocentric! Yet this is the revelation of the God of the Bible. It’s not that we have created a God in our image, but God has created us in His image. The Bible describes that image as a little lower than the angels! The majesty of God’s universe takes nothing away from His care for us. Do you feel insignificant in your environment? Remember that God cares for you! When you understand the mission of God through Jesus Christ to redeem His creation, how can you come to any other conclusion?
