Who Am I? - Part 4
When I consider 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, the son of man that You care for him? Psalm 8:3-4 NIV
I read some interesting facts about the ocean recently. Do you realize how large it is? If the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, were placed on the bottom of the ocean at its deepest point, there would still be 1.3 miles of ocean from the top of the mountain to the top of the water. Do you know how much salt there is in its body? An estimate of 50,000,000,000,000,000 tons of salt! If you were to take out all the salt and place it on the surface of the earth, it would stack up 150 feet tall all over the earth. Wow! That’s a lot of salt!
Why do I share these facts? They are interesting, but what good will they do for you and me in our daily lives? Well, I just can’t get over the fact that a God so big could love me so much. Why would a God who, according to the Bible, can hold 50 (whatever that number is with 15 zeroes after it) worth of salt in the palm of His hand, care anything for little ole me? Why, when He is responsible for such vastness, would He even bother to count the hairs on my head? (I know that job is easier now than it used to be, but still.)
I don’t know why, except that the Bible says we were created for His glory. But I know this: I’m glad He does! It makes me appreciate Him more. Once I realize His significance and His power, I’m more determined to rely on Him than ever before.
What about you? Can you love a God like that?
