I will confess, this word was a challenge. I don’t see myself as magnificent, so how would or could this be encouraging to me?
So here was my train of thought. All aboard…
The first stop in this trip was Psalm 8, “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, the human beings that you should care for them?” Not very encouraging when taken out of context.
Next we pulled into Psalm 139:14, “I thank you God, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” But while amazing, did not make me feel magnificent.
There must be a better destination.
Then I saw it. Actually, I saw a meme on Facebook—predictable. This was the message:
Now that’s magnificent! God chose me, chose you to be a piece of his creation, of his plan, of his purpose. He wants us here. Our part may not seem big, but it’s important.
We are intentionally part of something huge, grand, and that’s MAGNIFICENT!
