This week's song is a love letter from God to you. It's called "More" by Matthew West. Listen to this song as if God is singing it to you.
In Psalm 147, we are told that
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
Our God is ruler of the universe! So sometimes it may be hard for us to see why we might be important to him. I was once in a discussion group where a man said that he really does not think that God cares much about his life, that there are much more important things in the world for God to be concerned with. This man had a feeling of being insignificant. Do you ever feel that way? One person in the estimated 6.97 Billion people on this planet.
I think this all lies in our inability to understand the magnitude of God's abilities. In 2010, the estimated number of stars in our Universe was 300 sextillion....that's 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars! And God knows the real number and calls them each by name! So since God created mankind in His image, why isn't it possible that he could know each and every one of us?
In Matthew 10: 29-31, Jesus tells us:
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Jesus is clearly telling us that God is more able than our minds can comprehend, to follow our lives, and love us. You are not insignificant. God loves you MORE. And never forget, God loves you so much that he sent his Son to die an excrutiating death for you. That is a love that we can't truly comprehend in human terms.
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again
I love you more
May you come to understand that God loves you more than you can imagine. Now it's time to shine for Him.
