What are human beings that you are mindful of them? (v. 4)
Sitting in a college lecture hall, I struggled to keep awake. Just as my sleepy head was nodding, the professor called out to me, "Go ahead and sleep! I don't care!" I was mortified, surprised that he noticed me with so many other students in that large auditorium. When I look at the stars in the night sky, I am overwhelmed with awe. I feel so insignificant. I am less than one student in a lecture hall. I am one person on one planet, a tiny speck in the universe, a jot in the infinite beyond. God is beyond my comprehension! How can the incredible Creator of all even see me, let alone know and love me? I am incredulous, I am humbled. God even sees my brokenness. Unlike my annoyed professor, God doesn't embarrass me but chooses to crown me with glory and honor. The Creator lifts me up to be a little lower than God, even a helper, making me a steward of God's creation. In God's vast infinity, in my insignificant part of eternity, even with all of my imperfections, the Almighty considers me special. I am incredulous. I am honored.
God, you are infinite and awesome. Thank you for loving and honoring me, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
