In my Bible Alphabet Blog Series U stands for Universe.
Despite the fact that we live with an estimated 7.49 billion people on this earth, people often feel lonely. On a bigger scale many even feel lost, knowing that this earth is only a speck in an endless universe.
Thousands of years ago musician and poet David wrote a song (Psalm 8) about such thoughts and feelings...
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?
Trying to find our tiny place in a grand universe is not a fatalistic effort, it will bring us to a place where we will be amazed about God's love and kindness towards His creation. It will ultimately bring us to the realization that we will always be lonely and lost without Him, to the confession that we need Him and to the revelation that He cares for us.
And then... the journey of discovery will begin and He will show us WHY we are here on earth!
What are you waiting for? Take that journey!
