'The universe is astonishingly grand. Right now the moon is spinning around us at nearly 2300 miles per hour. Out Earth is spinning around the sun at 66,000 miles per hour. Our sun is one of 200 billion other stars and trillions more planets in our galaxy, and that galaxy is just one of 100 billion others hurtling through space. Amazing!

In comparison to this vast cosmos, our little Earth is no bigger than a pebble, and our individual lives no greater that a grain of sand. Yet according to Scripture, the God of the galaxies attends to each microscopic one of us in intimate detail. He saw us before we existed; He watches us as we go about our days and listens for our every thought.

It is very hard sometimes to believe. This tiny "pebble" has big problems like war and famine, and we can question God's care in times of personal suffering. But when King David wrote Psalm 139 he was in the midst of crisis himself. And when Jesus said God counts each hair on our heads (Matthew 10:30). He was living in a age of crucifixion. Biblical talk of God's caring attention isn't a naive wish. It is real world truth.



The One who keeps the galaxies spinning knows us intimately. That can help us get through the worst of times.
