There are almost 8 billion people on planet Earth. When thinking of that massive amount, it’s hard to believe that just one person can stand out. However, in a multitude, just one can make a difference. Imagine if just one star was missing from the sky, or one color from the rainbow. Perhaps even one bird from the air. God designed everything in such a perfect way that ‘just one’ really does matter.
Just you matter to your partner, friends, co-workers, etc. You are an important part of their life. But above all, you matter to God.
Maybe you have always thought that your problems don’t matter, that they won’t reach God’s ear; but His Word makes it clear that no matter who you are or how small you may think you are, He hears you when you approach Him in this way:
“I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit…” Isaiah 57:15
You may say: God doesn’t see me. He doesn’t care. I am just one more sad story.” No matter who you are, God hears you. He is looking down on what seems to be your miserable situation and He’s ready to help you overcome it. He always finds a way to rescue us. Perhaps right now you see no way out and you feel broken. You can approach God at any time. All He needs is your sincerity.
Among the 8 billion, God sees you.
May the God of the Bible bless you!
