God made everything. All that is, both seen and unseen. He made it all. Every last bit. The whole shooting match.
And when you look at all the universe, you know what you see? When you read the first books of the Bible, Genesis 1-2, we see that all of the universe is pointing directly at the earth.
I love the story in Genesis 1 where when it says God made the stars and the moon to give light to the earth at night. Think about that. God made all the stars in the sky, simply so we would have a night-light. How amazing is that!
And so when we see all of creation we see this fact as well. Of all that God made, of all the amazing things He has created, we as humans, we are the highest of all them. We are the pinnacle of creation. Listen to what it says in Psalm 8: 3-5:
When I look at 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, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
We see all that God has done and think, what is it that you, Oh God, are mindful of us. You are so big, and we are so small. Why are you concerned with us? Of what value are we?
And we see what the Word teaches us. We matter. We are crowned with glory.
So we see the beautiful contrast here. We are small and insignificant when compared to God and His universe. And yet we are the height of God’s creation.
So, we stay humble, nothing that we are small. Remember, that this world is not about us. It is about God.
And we are mindful knowing that we are the height of creation, we are sacred, special, and amazing.
That’s who we are. We are small. And we are amazing. We are a speck of dust. And we are the most brilliant thing God has ever made. That’s who we are.
Today, rejoice in who you are. And know that God is with us, each step of the way.
