Of everything God made, you’re His favorite
From Psalms: A 28-Day Devotional
The psalmist calls God majestic. Such high praise is reserved for the best. God is impressive, beautiful, dignified, glorious. God is an all-impressive creator, and we are His favorite creation.
The same God who created a never-ending kaleidoscope of sunsets, oceans, jungles, and stars set apart sinful humans as His favorites. Psalm 8:5 says He has "crowned [us] with glory and honor," and we did nothing to deserve it.
God made us in His image (Genesis 1:27). He is mindful of us. He knows every hair on our heads, and He cares for us by providing for our basic needs (Matthew 6:25-32).
Not only does God care for us practically, He cares for us spiritually and emotionally. God wants to spend time with us daily and enjoy a close, intimate relationship with us. He sent Jesus so we could be one with Him just as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one (John 17:20-23).
Jesus became fully human and sacrificed Himself so we could have a relationship with God. Through Jesus' sacrifice, our sin debt is paid. Being "mindful of [us]" sounds like an understatement in light of God's great plan. He placed us as the centerpiece of His thoughts and divine will. This is extraordinary love.
- Who or what do you love most? How far would you go to show them your love?
- How does knowing God thinks of you that way change your perspective of Him?
