Under His wings ( Psalm 17 v 8 )

The vastness of the universe, and a God who is so awesome, can make us feel insignificance, do we matter?, is God who is so great,really concerned about humanity?.Taking it further,is he really interested in me, as an individual?,the answer is yes, I mentioned to someone ( it was to a young man who was cutting my hair in my local barbers) how the very hairs of or our head are known to God.. Oswald Chambers wrote,'' Things that make God to us are not so much His great blessings, as the tiny things, because they show His amazing intimacy with us as the tiny things, because they show His intimacy with us; He  knows every detail of our individual lives''.All humanity is important to God the creator,as we are told in Matthew 5 v 4 5, ''He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous''.This is His general care to all ,but it is only as we enter  the new birth by trusting Jesus do we enter that special relationship , then we can call God our heavenly Father,then we fully realise that we have a God who is always watching over us,He is no absentee land lord, or absent father.                                                                                                                                                              Under His wings I am safely abiding;                                                                                                       Though the night deepens and tempests                                                                                                     are wild,                                                                                                                                                     Still I can trust Him,I know He will keep                                                                                                  me                                                                                                                                                              He has redeemed me, and I am His child.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Under His wings,Under His wings,                                                                                                             Who from His love can sever?                                                                                                                   Under His wings my soul shall abide,                                                                                                        Safely abide for ever.                                                                                                                                    (William Orcutt Cushing )
