Who am I?
Something to keep in mind when we see a sky filled with stars or a blazing sunset vista or a view from a mountain's peak:
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
From Psalm 8
We could make a case that we are simply insignificant pieces of dust on this planet.
The One who knows all thinks of us! The Creator cares for us! He sees us as glorious! We matter to God!
This is why He sent His Son to save us. This is why He seeks to restore us. This is why He longs to bring us home. We matter to the One to whom belongs all the glory.
Yes, there is more depravity in us than we know, YET there is also more dignity in us than we dare to dream.
This is a call for us to live up to the glorious and honorable creatures we are.
How might you live differently today if you would pray, "Thank You, God, for crowning me with glory and honor"?
There is something about you - there is something in you - that reflects God's glory.
Live up to that fact today. It's one way to help you to "live new."
