We are important to God;
“What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him?” (Psalm 8:4)
Since God is the infinite Creator, who are we that He should care about us? Why should God even give humans a second thought…especially when we rebel against Him all the time?
It is precisely because God is infinite that He can watch a distant asteroid, yet still notice when a hair from our head falls to the ground on earth. It is precisely because God is our Creator that he loves us…even in our fallen state.
And He has a wonderful plan for us:
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada the priest which stood above the temple and said unto them: ‘Thus says the Lord, why do you transgress the commandments of the Lord? You cannot prosper because you have forsaken the Lord, thus He has forsaken you.” (2 Chronicles 24:20)
Father thank you that you are always mindful of us and that you ears are open to our prayers…amen
