When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
Psalms 8:3 and 4
Have you ever wondered how valuable you really are to the Almighty God? When you truly understand His Majesty—how extraordinarily phenomenal He is—then fathoming how our God could find us worthy has the potential of being unimaginable. The beauty of God is He loves us and His word says, “This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins,” (1 John 4:10). The Bible has much more to say on how important and worthy we are to Him.
Ephesians 2:10 says, “…for we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” We are handiwork…not sloppy work, not an afterthought of work…but His handiwork! And He has good works for us. God thought of us, planned our lives and, then, made sure we had purposes.
Matthew 10:30-31 says, “And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” God numbered the very hairs on our heads. Each one! Every single one! That’s far too detailed to be perceived as unworthy.
Psalms 139:13-16 says, “For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” Worthy, worthy, worthy! Oh, so very worthy. Look at such the delicate detail taken on both you and I. A God of majesty took all His majesty and used it to create us.
The last verse I have to show how important we are to God is Genesis 1:27. This verse should leave no doubt in your mind that you are important to God. This verse is at the very beginning of His love letter to us and it says, “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” In His own image. Nothing says important like making one like you.
Are you valuable to God? Do you know your worth in Him? Do you believe you are worthy in His eyes? Because you are!

Lord, help me to see me like You see me. I pray that Your words be louder than those around me and that I never forget who I am to You. Amen.
