Insignificant and Small

Have you ever felt insignificant?  Small?  Lost within a large crowd?  Have you ever looked at the night sky and thought how small and insignificant we seem in the vast universe around us?  

We find ourselves on a small blue planet in the back alleys of the universe looking out at an amazing view of just a few of the billions of stars around us.  It all makes me feel very small and it was meant to.  

As I look at the universe and see how vast it really is, the question I ask is this, Who made all of this?  What kind of God is this that could make and sustain all that I see?  

The Bible says that God named every star and knows each one by name.  Really?  In the vastness of this amazing universe God claims to not only be the creator but also the sustainer of it all.  What fascinates me as I look at the night sky are these words from Genesis 1,  “He also made the stars.”  With just five words God describes a work that scientists are still trying to figure out.

It is all too amazing.

Small and insignificant?  It’s a sense of our place in the universe and yet we seem to claim we know so much.  Around us are men who claim to know how it all began, where it came from, and yet they really know so little.  In the vastness of all that is around us it is fascinating to me that some claim knowledge they cannot possibly have.  

Anything but small and insignificant.  That’s how I feel when I read these simple words,

” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

In this short passage, I realize the God who made the heavens sees and loves me.  Even if no one else ever sees me… God does and He loves me and He loves you.

Small?  Insignificant? 

In God’s eyes… never.
