When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
Psalm 8:3-4 NIV
Our God is a magnificent God who created all things in the heavens and on the earth for our pleasure but He created mankind for His own pleasure. If we come to think of it, of all His majestic creations and for a God as big as He is, why would He care for mankind who are just like dust in this whole creation of Him. Why would he be mindful of us human beings when we barely compare to all His majestic creation. I believe it’s because we were created by God in His very own image (Genesis 1:27). God created mankind to become like Him, not to be Him or to replace Him but to reflect who He is. He created us so He can commune with us. He created us so He can share the love in Him and the grace that embodies His being. He chose to create us and place us to rule over all His creation on earth because that is How important and valuable we are to Him even if we see it otherwise.
Always keep in mind how valuable we are to God, we are created special so we can reflect who God is in this world. A loving, caring and gracious God. Always know who you are in His eyes, that we are blessed, highly favored and deeply loved.
I pray that the Lord will continue to show us who we are in Christ. That He may continue to show how deeply loved and blessed we are. That He may continue to reveal Himself to us as we continue to study His words.
