It’s Okay to Feel Small

When you begin to feel self-important, remember how mighty and vast God is.

The opposite of feeling insignificant is feeling self-important, and we’ve got plenty of that going around. Everybody wants to be king of the world. There’s only one problem with putting yourself at the center of the universe: You tend to push God out.

We’re all for feeling confident. There’s nothing wrong with knowing who you are, as long as you know whose you are. You aren’t some autonomous being in full control of your destiny. You belong to God, who designed and built you as surely as He set the moon and the stars in place.

Knowing that, it seems a little silly to tell God, “Thanks for getting the ball rolling, but I can handle it from here.” Instead, we should be thankful that our big God has taken our small lives and turned them into something significant.

When I look up at the night sky and see the work of your fingers–the moon and the stars you have set in place–what are mortals that you should think of us, mere humans that you should care for us? Psalm 8:3-4
