We all have had times in life where we tempted to believe our lives were insignificant in the eyes of others and perhaps even our own.

We were made to feel that we weren’t attractive enough to find a good mate.

We were made to feel that we weren’t smart enough or cool enough or rich enough or “___________” enough.

The fact is that we can always find people who are more attractive or smarter or more cool or richer or ________-er.

If we dwell on what we aren’t or what we don’t have, we just might see ourselves as Psalm 62:9 sees us.

“Common people are as worthless as a puff of wind, and the powerful are not what they appear to be. If you weigh them on the scales, together they are lighter than a breath of air.”

Notice that bigshots are also “lighter than a breath of air.”

Hmmmm….. very interesting.

The psalmist’s message here is not intended to demean, but instead to compare human status with that of God.

The purpose of verse 9 above is clear — we need a relationship with and the help of the Creator who holds all of its immeasurable mass in the palm of His hand, deserving and desiring that we acknowledge how omnipotent and amazing He is.

No matter how the world pushes you down, remember that Jesus died so that you might be lifted up from moments of despair as you lift your prayers to the Creator of all that is.

You see, God didn’t send His Son to die for trash but instead for the treasure that is you.

By the way, in the next life, we’ll be walking in the clouds.

As always, I love you
