Spiritual Blog - What is Man

Psalm – 8:3-5 – “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.” NKJV


Today, in my time with the Lord before the sun rose I looked at the stars, planets that I could see and the moon shining so brightly I was in awe of God’s creation.  Quietness surrounded me and I could listen in the stillness to the Spirit of God whisper to my heart of God’s Love.  I am still trembling with joy and awe at the Majesty of God.  When you look at what He has done in the Universe – “What is man?”  We are so insignificant and minuscule but so valuable to God that He would give His only begotten Son that we could enter into Life Everlasting and spend eternity with them.  You are not unimportant though people may treat you that way and you may even view yourself that way.  God views you as worth the “Blood of Jesus.”  I can say that without fear of having to retract that statement by just looking at the Cross.  If it were not true Jesus would never have gone to the Cross, but He did.  He did not for God but for man. He went to the Cross for you and me.

Oh, we are so temporal while housed in this physical body and cannot see as the angels see but they know how much we mean to God.  The Scripture informs us in Luke 15:7 – “…that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” NKJV Heaven erupts when one human being is born again into the family of God.  That should tell you how important man is to the Father.

You may have little self-esteem, be steeped and mired in depression, and feel as though mankind has thrown you on the ash heap of life but God hasn’t.  You are important to God and if you will allow Him the Holy Spirit will come into your heart and instill within in a sense of worth that will lift you above whatever state of despondency you might be in and shroud you in peace, the peace that passes all human understanding.  You will be able to lift up your head and walk proudly knowing that you are a Child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Not prideful, but with a sense of pride knowing that you belong to God and have nothing to be ashamed of.  You are an heir of God and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ the Righteous.  That is a position and condition that cannot be ascended above.  It is the pinnacle!

So as you go through this day go with a sense of knowing that you belong to God and are valuable to Him.  Walk in peace and allow the Joy of the Lord to flood your heart!  May God be with you as you go through this day!  Blessings!
