Psalms 8:3 (NKJV) When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained.
Yesterday, we brought out how God made all of this for His creation, humanity. Have you ever stopped to wonder why everything God makes is so extreme? You may ask, “What do you mean by that?” Well, look at the sky. God could have made enough stars to surround the earth, but no! He made enough stars to surround the universe. They say that there are stars that are billions and billions of light-years away! A light-year is approximately 186,000 miles per second, so can you even imagine how far away the are, and how many stars there are?
Look at the trees. He could have made a few varieties, but not our Heavenly Father! He made thousands of different types of plants and trees. He made big ones and small ones. He made ones with lots of color, and some with one color. Then we go to the animals that He made, and again, He just does not stop. So many! Big ones, little ones, colorful ones, and others that are plain. It is just amazing!
Listen to these verses in Psalms 19:1-6, “1 The heavens tell the glory of God, and the skies announce what His hands have made. 2 Day after day they tell the story; night after night they tell it again. 3 They have no speech or words; they have no voice to be heard. 4 But their message goes out through all the world; their words go everywhere on earth. The sky is like a home for the sun. 5 The sun comes out like a bridegroom from his bedroom. It rejoices like an athlete eager to run a race. 6 The sun rises at one end of the sky and follows its path to the other end. Nothing hides from its heat.”
Wow! That is all for us! Truly, that makes us special. Confess this until it becomes real to you. Start seeing yourself the way that God, your Father, sees you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. He did it all for you, so you are truly special!
Confession: My Father made all of this for me, so in His sight I am special. The world might not think I am, but if His Word says I am, than I am. I am special today, and every day.
