What is Man?

What is man, that you keep him in mind? the son of man, that you take him into account? (BBE) Psalm 8:4

In this Psalm, David was worshiping God, recanting all God’s glory and how awesome he is. And then he began to ponder why even though God was so awesome and magnificent he still takes his time to bother, care and visit man. Why he has placed man in such a place of authority. Let’s also ponder on this mystery.

God is awesome, google or visit the most beautiful lake/ocean on this earth, God created and controls it, the most modern technology of our times was inspired from the wisdom of God, the tallest mountains and highest heights bow down to him. God controls and orchestrated the most beautiful creation of life, he has the answers to all questions and his wisdom is unfathomable. When he speaks, it sounds like thunder, his appearance is purer than light, he is so awesome that no man can see him and live. The Bible says that by the breath of God, ice is made – Ponder on Job 37: 1-18.

Doesn’t all this make you wonder why God so cares about sinful, simple man much more than anything else?

When there was war in heaven (God’s own abode), he sent his angels to handle it (Rev 12: 7-8) but when it came to man; the moment man fell, another plan was already in place to bring him back and the plan involved God himself leaving his glorious throne to come and suffer and die for us. Even when Jesus’s work was done and he was leaving the earth, God ensured he sent the Holy Spirit who is also God to come and stay with us every day, every moment forever to keep us. Now don’t you want to know why?

The bible says that God is mind-ful of us; that is his mind is full of us. He is always thinking about us cos we are the only thing on his mind. When your mind is full about something, you think about it all the time, you dream about it, you talk to it with everyone you know, you worry about it, it is essentially what you live for. It is similar to what couples in love experience when all they want to do is see, speak to and about, spend time with their loved ones. When they are not together everything seems slow but once they come together, time can fly by for all they care. They speak to everyone that has ears about this special person that has come into their lives. It’s a beautiful thing and the bible says God has this same feeling for you! Halleluyah!

Here are some scriptures about how God’s mind is full of us

  • See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands; Your walls are continually before Me. (NKJV) – Isaiah 49:16
  • He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. (NKJV) – Deut 32:10
  • The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” (NKJV) – Zeph 3:17
  • For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Roms 8:38-39

Why did make man a little lower than himself in the grand scheme of things (Psalm 8: 5) or why did he make him ruler over the whole earth? The answer can be found in the very beginning.

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (NKJV) Gen 1: 27

Man was made in Gods likeness, after God and he carries the very life of God on the inside of himself!

Man is so powerful, so precious much more than we even know ourselves and God cannot allow anything to happen to his precious ones. This is why he so painfully died and he everyday calls and knocks on the doors of our hearts because he loves us and has placed his treasure in us.

Any mother will tell you that she will sell all she has, even give up her life if it will save her child, this kind and even greater love than this does God have for us. To God, the mighty seas and mountains are inconsequential, the plants and all the trees don’t matter, what matters to him is you! He has shown that he will go all lengths to see you do well…that should blow your mind!

So from now; walk tall, shoulder high cos you have the very breath of the Most High in you, the entire army of heaven are at your disposal and the mind of the Almighty God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords is full of you!

I encourage you to meditate on Psalms 8 and Job 37 and come to a place of surety that God’s got you

Have an awesome week!
