Old Testament In a Year: May 22 – Psalms 7, 8

Psalms 7, 8
Focus Verse: What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? – Psalm 8:4

God is infinite. You are finite. God is immortal. You are mortal. God is mighty, and majestic, and everlasting. You are weak, inconsiderable, and temporary. Yet, God thinks of you. He is mindful of you. He cares for you.

It is why He crowned you with glory and honor. It is why He gave you dominion over His creation, control over His entire world. It is why He did so much to save you.

When you don’t feel like you are enough, when difficult circumstances cause you to question your value or worth, remember this Scripture. Remember the fact that God is mindful of you. I want you to know, God says, that I am thinking of you constantly. You never pass out of My thoughts.

You may question why a vast and glorious God, who made the heavens and the earth and who set the moon and stars in place with His fingers, may focus His attention on you. Why should His thoughts be turned to you? What have you done to have Him give you honor? Nothing, God says. You have done nothing, said nothing, made nothing. And I do not want you to ever feel like you must do something to have My attention or be in My thoughts. It is all of My mercy and love.
