What is man, that you make so much of him, and that you set your heart on him,
This is a real question that I know we have all had at least one time or another! I was asking God this morning about this very thing: Why would you (God of All) care about the details of my life? There are so many people out there, why would my frustrations, struggles, wounded heart, joys sorrows, desires and path for my life matter, I am just a smudge on a map when you look at it all. How is it possible that you really care about just one little person and every detail of their life?
We all toss around the statements that have been familiar since early childhood or from when you first accepted Him as your Savior about God’s love for us that are meant to comfort and encourage. I feel as though the real impact and meaning of those words often have been lost due to our experiences with the selfishness of the “human heart”. The words, I love you, are sometimes spoken by people that you know don’t have an ounce of love for you or they say that they love you and turn around and break your heart into a million pieces. Where’s the love?
This morning as I was praying and just admiring how amazing God is, that was my question: as Big and awesome and wonderful as you are, why would you be concerned about the details of one little person like me? The answer is actually pretty simple: When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I remember wondering how I could possibly have room in my heart to love this child as much as I did my first one. When I had my 3rd child, it wasn’t even a question because I realized that it wouldn’t matter how many children I had there would always be more love and room in my heart for that one too! God is capable of so much more than we could ever think and He is able to love beyond even the love of a Mom. No matter how many people there have ever been or how many there ever will be, God loves you and He cares about every detail of your life just as much as He ever has about anyone else or ever will in the future! This isn’t a passive love or a flippant, meaningless comment ~ You mean more to Him than words can explain! He loves you more than anyone ever has or ever will! You are precious in His eyes and what you are facing today is important to Him, whether you are on the Mountaintop or you are in the depths of a valley that is overwhelming your heart ~ He is there and He cares! You are as important as Esther or Hannah or Mary or David or Job, ……. you matter to Him.
So with this in mind today ~ trust Him, pour your heart out to Him, run to His throne with a new boldness and understanding of just how much He loves and cares for you! Hold on to that truth today! Truly, the best is yet to come!
