Today’s Psalms gives us some important perspective of ourselves against the massive expanses of the universe.
Psa 8:3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
Psa 8:4 What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him?
David back then is looking at the universe, the moon and the stars that are in perfect synch with one another; for example the moon’s gravitational pull on the tides is so perfect across the different lunar phases, that it keeps the oceans in perfect harmony with the land, so one doesn’t dry up, nor does the other flood.
Or take the fact of how the earth perfectly rotates around the sun so that each continent has perfect seasons, no one burns to death, nor does anyone freeze to death. Only our divine Creator could calculate something so beautifully precise.
Against this awesome backdrop, David then says; wow, look at this amazing creation from our Creator, and while God made the sun, the moon and the stars, God also made us, and we weren’t just some nameless serial number off a factory assembly line either….God actually knew us before time began, as Christ tells us, God knows us so much better than we do our own-selves that the very hairs on our head are numbered by Him.
In fact, not only did He create us, God also gave us a path forward through our redemption through the death of His Son, another fantastic truth that should put great joy in our hearts.
