Mere Man

"When I look up into the night skies and see the work of Your fingers-the moon and the stars you have made – I cannot understand how You can bother with mere puny man, to pay any attention to him!" (Ps. 8:33-4 TLB)

I take the dog out every night just before we "hit the hay" and let him get everything done that he needs to do–run the fences, explore the yard, and scare off any intruders, plus necessary body functions.

While he does his thing, I do mine. I look up–a mere puny man. But God doesn’t see me as a "mere puny man." And I’m not a "bother" to Him. Oh, no. He loves me so much that He died for me and now I belong to Him. I’m the apple of His eye.

He’s constantly watching over me and listening for the slightest distress whisper that I might make. In fact, He’s standing there with me-looking up at His creation and so pleased that I am impressed. "Thank You, Lord, for creating the heavens and all the stars and the moon." What a huge panorama of God’s handiwork! It isn’t just everyday grace, is it? It’s every night grace. Or could we call it every moment grace?
