Why Am "I" important?

King David asked a valid question: Why do You even care about me Lord? You are so great and I am so small. . .  or in David's own words in the Message Bible:

Psalm 8:3-5 (MSG)
3-4 I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
      your handmade sky-jewelry,
   Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
      Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
   Why do you bother with us?
      Why take a second look our way?

 5-8 Yet we've so narrowly missed being gods,
      bright with Eden's dawn light.
   You put us in charge of your handcrafted world,
      repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
   Made us lords of sheep and cattle,
      even animals out in the wild,
   Birds flying and fish swimming,
      whales singing in the ocean deeps.

These few verses express so much. In comparison with God and His colossal creation of such monumental beauty and gigantic size, and then here we are, so small and often not beautiful in our actions and thoughts. Why O God do you care about us?

So then as I gave this to God, He answered me in Genesis. He created us in His own image and likeness; He created us out of love and even though we did betray Him, our all knowing God had it all planned out. Jesus volunteered to come and teach us about God the Father and His character, then to suffer through  sacrificial death where He took on all our sin debt, cleansing us. After He rose from the dead, Jesus finished teaching and went to heaven to be our intercessor in the throne room. He also made it possible for Holy Spirit to indwell us. . .  all because He loves us unworthy in ourselves, but then made pure and worthy by the blood of Jesus.

As a result we should never allow the enemy to put negative feelings of unworthiness on us. We are the beloved children of our most high God. As we accept the gift of salvation and redemption that Jesus suffered and died to give us, we receive God Himself, the Holy Spirit. We can go right into the throne room and climb upon Daddy God’s lap; He is never too busy for us and loves it when we come and trustingly share our thoughts, trials and love with Him.

vs 9 God, brilliant Lord, your name echoes around the world. (he last verse of Psalm 8 is truth).

In one way or another His name echoes around the world. It is our job through prayer, and financial support, and perhaps being “Go-ers” [missionaries] to see that truth prevails and all come to know of Jesus’ gift of salvation. In every country there is tremendous need for truth speaking as the enemy has made great strides in perverting the truth. It is for us to stand and proclaim and not back down. Trust in our God Who loves us with power and gentleness to give us strength and protection.
