From the psalms we check out,
“What is man that You are mindful of him . . . ?” (Psalm 8:4 – NKJV)
David wrote our brief message as he contemplated the glory and majesty of God,
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and also the stars, which You have actually ordained, what is guy that You are mindful of him, and the boy of male that You visit him?” (Psalm 8:3-4 – NKJV)
Do you ever before ask yourself this question? Often, in my own mind I have actually thought upon God, who He is, what He has actually done, what He is doing, what He is going to perform . . . what He is qualified of doing, and I have actually wondered this exact same assumed that David expressed, personalizing it, asking, “Who am I Lord that you would be mindful of me?” Against the backdrop of His majesty, His holiness, His power, I view myself as so exceptionally little, seeming so very inconsiderable, so undeserving . . . . yet, He is “mindful of” me. It boggles my mind! He that made the “heavens . . . the moon and also the stars,” those magnificent creations that are “the job-related of (His fingers),” points He has actually “ordained.” And then to think of how He created whatever and also it was great and also it pleased Him. He spoke it right into existence, the crowning minute of it all being as soon as, in His own image, He created “male.” Can you begin to fathom the wonder of it all? And then to think that this “guy,” this one God produced to have fellowship via Him, this “man” made a decision to rebel against Him, made a decision to sin against Him and also separate himself from the extremely One that had developed him. I stumble, I awkwardly relocate around, I sin, my mind going locations it should not go, by no suggests seeming to be of any kind of value to God. How is it that He would be “mindful of” me? I know what He is capable of. I recognize what I rightly deserve. I know that just as in His mighty power He spoke all points into being He could just as conveniently rerelocate them and also start everywhere aget, and in the entirety of such a process make it that rebellious “man” receives what he rightly deserves. But no, He has not preferred to carry out such a thing, but rather He has actually preferred to be “mindful” of me. So “mindful” that instead of bringing His righteous wrath upon me He has chosen instead to make . . .
“. . . Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and ended up being obedient to the point of fatality, even the fatality of the cross.” (Philippians 2:7-8 – NKJV)
God in Christ has actually liked instead to pay the penalty for my sin, my rebellion, and make it possible that I might be reconcicaused Him. Taking “the form of a bondservant . . . coming in the likeness of guys . . . being discovered in appearance as a male . . . humbling Himself . . . . obedient” in His coming “to the suggest of death, even the death of the cross.” I would say brethren, that God has been incredibly “mindful” of us . . . . . has He not? As I write this, as I sheight and ponder this, it is all as well good, all as well wonderful for this finite “male.” My response simply seems to be so inadequate no issue what words I might choose to say or think. I am left to quote an additional when I “consider” that He is so extremely “mindful” of me . . . .
“Such love requirements my soul, my life, my all . . .”
Are you not of the same mind? Have a great day . .
