“Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way?” (Ps 8:4 MSG).
My smallness in contrast to His greatness and the vastness of His creation causes me to wonder. Why would God even bother with someone as small and seemingly insignificant as I am? If it were only my appearance, my worth would be very little. But since God looks at His creation from the perspective of potential, we all stand as His masterpieces created for good works. What we have the potential to become and to do far outweighs the work of angels. We are to reflect His glory to all of His creation. Principalities and powers in heavenly places will know His many-faceted wisdom through those obedient souls that are surrendered to Him. God gives special attention to mankind. All of creation is held in subjection until the mature sons of God are manifested for its release. Therefore God is not merely looking at historical or current events. He is looking at those who are in Christ being prepared to carry out His work.
