My title for this devotion is Little People vs Feeling Little.

There are many people who feel little or insignificant. They have been made to feel less than someone else due to status, wealth, position, race, or even job. And others have done a great job at making them feel that way. But I stand on pretty solid ground when I say we were never created to feel that way. As they say “we all put our pants on the same way.” I have yet to see someone stand their pants up and jump into them. (That is wrong is so many ways!) 🙂

However, having just returned from an awe-inspiring trip to Alaska, I can speak of feeling little-in a good way. For example. take a look at  these pictures:











How can your thoughts not be drawn to Psalm 8:4- “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers. the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”

We were never made to feel small in another person’s eyes. As Francis Schaeffer once wrote, “There are no little people.” No matter what society says, we are on equal plane, but when it comes to God and His creation, it is humbling to realize how important we are to Him. And yet…how small we are.

“Father, Your majesty overwhelms me, humbles me. No matter what others think of me, I’m important to you. Thank you that I matter to you.”

    In a society that screams that performance, looks, hairstyle, clothes, cars, homes, personality, fame, fortune is how we are valued… It isn’t hard to understand why so many fall for the trap that I have maintain a status quo to be valued.

    I am thankful that God levels that playing field. At the end of the day, none of the above will matter as we come together in the majesty of God.

  2. I feel that exact same way whenever we travel to the mountains, Bill. Yes, who am I, Lord, that you should be mindful of me? The miracle of it all is that He is!
