Minister's Message


 

 He cares for you
“When I look at the sky, which you have made, at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places— what are human beings, that you think of them;mere mortals, that you care for them?”
-Psalm 8: 3,4
Psalm 8 is a beautiful hymn of praise to God. Like many of the Psalms, it was
written by David. David begins and ends the psalm with these words of
praise and acclamation: “O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all
the earth!” (verses 1 & 8).
Because the Psalm speaks of God’s creation and the night sky in particular, it
was probably sung quite often in evening worship, beneath the very skies
under which the words were originally composed.
The Psalm is in the second person. David addresses God throughout the
Psalm, and as he speaks to God, David reflects both on God’s creation and
man’s place in God’s creation. What does Psalm 8 teach us about our place
in God’s creation? When we look at the vast expanse of creation, we wonder
how God could be concerned for people who constantly disappoint Him. Yet
God created us only a little lower than Himself and the angels! It’s hard to
fathom that He who made the heavens and moon, and gathered the stars
would be concerned with us, such small creatures in the grand scheme of
things. But, He really does care about even the smallest of things in our lives.
The next time you question your worth as a person, remember that God
considers you highly valuable. We have great worth because we bear the
stamp of the creator. Because God has already declared how valuable we are
to Him, we can be set free from feelings of worthlessness.
I can hear the Lord in my spirit telling someone who is reading this article to
“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the
righteous be shaken (Psalm 55:22) The Lord will take care of you and will not let
you fall. Cast your burdens and entrust this season of your life to Him, for He is
able”   .

Peace and blessings,

Your loving brother,

Henri.
