God has created the entire Universe out of Nothing. When we consider the whole Universe, our Galaxy, the Milky way is nothing but like a drop of water in the whole ocean, And when we consider our Galaxy the Milky Way, our own Earth is again like a drop of water in the whole ocean and when we consider the Earth, how much more insignificant are we? Billions of people have lived in the years past, died, killed, cried, laughed and yet have turned back to dust. Yet in our own eyes how significant we are! Aren’t we vain enough to think that our own lives, are something great? Don’t we demand from God what we want, and don’t we feel angry if we feel God is too harsh? Yet again, when we consider the heavens, the whole universe, the earth and then ourselves, we find and feel that we are less than nothing in front of God.
The Psalmist also must have thought along these lines when he said
“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him?” Psalms 8.
Yet God is ready to consider us. He listens to our prayers, hears our concerns and cares. Yet we rebel against him as sinners , and still his love is there for us and he cares and chastens us. How much we should love our God for these great mercies.
I am forever thankful to God for having saved me out of my sins, and also for continually loving me in spite of my weaknesses. I am more than glad that he listens to my prayers and I know and trust that he will perfect me in my faith in the end!
“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. ” Jude 1:24
