Have you ever looked up into the night sky and just exclaimed, "Wow?"
It is vast! It is magnificent! There are SO MANY STARS! And the beauty of all of it is just astounding. God is great!
And to think that what you see is just a speck of what is out there. Space goes on and on.....
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, (Psalms 8:3-6 NASB)
Why would God think so much of us? Why does He love me? What am I in comparison to all the universe?
Yet God does love me. He knows how many hairs are on my head, and judging by my hairbrush, this job alone should keep Him busy.
I have value. You have value. God is so in love with us that He sings over us. Zeph. 3:17
Yet, I let Him down. I fail. I am not what/who He created me to be. My failures separate me from God. And no matter what I try to do I cannot bridge that separation.
But God loves me/us so much that He made a way.
His Son Jesus is the bridge.
