He Cares For Us!

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? – Psalm 8:3-4

Tonight, after the sun sets, walk outside and look up. If it’s a clear night, you’ll see a sky full of stars, billions of them. Many of them, if not most, are actually so big they make our sun look small. If you had
a telescope, you could aim it at some of those stars, and you’d find they’re actually galaxies so far away they look like stars to the naked eye. There are billions of galaxies out beyond our own, each
containing billions of stars themselves. It is estimated that the universe contains approximately 200 billion trillion stars. Each and every single one of them was created and set in its place by the God
we worship!

David’s remarkable realization in Psalm 8 was that the same God who made all of that is mindful of us! He cares for us! If that’s true, then we have no reason to fear or worry in this life! Any obstacle that comes our way, any trial we face, any difficulty we come up against, is no match for the God we worship. He knows the
obstacles we face, he is bigger than those obstacles, and handling them is no problem for him. All we need to do is trust him!
