When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
Recently I found myself in a long conversation with a friend of mine about both the immense grandeur of the known universe and the awesome complexity of quantum particles. Bigness and smallness…[Wait…those words don’t even come close to articulating the essence of either end of this spectrum]. The conclusion of our conversation was speechlessness!
In this brief praise psalm, David considers the vast scale of God’s creation and is filled with worshipful exaltation that humanity, in our ‘smallness’, would be on the mind of God in the midst of such ‘BIGNESS.’ As I reflect on this, I can’t help but think of things in my life that I have thought of as being ‘BIG’ problems or issues. In light of God’s grandeur, there is no such thing as ‘BIG’ because I’m not ‘small’ or insignificant to Him.
