>When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? Psalm 8:3-4
Years ago, someone told me, “I can’t believe in God because how could anyone possibly listen to every prayer from every person on the planet and answer. It’s impossible. I just can’t believe in God.”
Personally, I can’t believe in a God who can’t hear the prayers of 6,692,030,277 people and answer them. God is far beyond us and our abilities to understand Him.
While He has revealed a great deal about Himself to us through His Word, we have everything we need to know, but certainly not everything we want to know. The Bible tells us that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
When we consider the wonders of the night sky, with the Psalmist, we get a sense of how great God is and how relatively small we are. God is lofty. God is over all. What an awesome perspective. We also know that God is near and cares about us.
When you’ve had one of those days when life has completely overwhelmed you, just step outside and gaze up at the stars. If God can take care of all of that, He certainly can take care of what’s going on with you. Nothing is overwhelming to God.
