THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
My son is 6’1” tall, and I’m 5’11”.
My wife is barely 5’ tall.
One day, a friend of my son’s said,
“Your mother is so short, she has to look up to see what’s going down!”
Looking up is a good thing!
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
David said, “When I consider Thy heavens....”
Have YOU considered them?
The sky is incredible on a clear night!
We look into the face of the universe and see more stars than our mind can count.
Our sun, which we see during the day, is 93 million miles away.
The next nearest star (seen at night) is 270 million miles away.
And, these two are only a very small portion of our galaxy.
It takes light traveling over 100,000 years just to cross our galaxy!
Then, there are billions of stars beyond that and many, many other galaxies!
The Bible tells us, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1)
ALL the universe is the work of God’s creativity!
Now all that makes me feel insignificant!!
In all that glory, God created man.
And, David says in the song above, “..Thou are mindful of him..”
The Hebrew word is zakar (pronounced zaw kar’), which means: marked out, remembered, paying attention to.
God marked out man, and came to live among us in Jesus Christ.
He died to make atonement for our sins.
And, He invites us to become a part of His eternal, everlasting life!
THAT makes me feel significant!!
One day, soon I believe, He’s coming back to CLAIM those who have surrendered to Him.
Until that time, “He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” (Heb. 7:25)
Truly, we must LOOK UP to see what, or rather WHO is coming down!
And, though our surmounting problems may make us feel insignificant,
knowing Christ as Lord and Savior makes us feel significant!!
