Who Am I?

In Psalm 8, David writes a beautiful song to God as he works to understand our purpose and significance in this amazing world the Lord has created. When considering the heavens, moon and stars, David wonders how the Creator of these great things could notice and care for man.

Don’t we often still wrestle with that question? Who are we? What is our purpose, and why would the Creator of the universe love and care for us? Thankfully, Psalm 8 answers those questions as well. We were made only a little lower than heavenly beings and crowned with glory and honor. We were made as the rulers of everything God created — all the beasts of the land, birds of the air and fish of the seas. According to Scripture, we are made in God’s image and we are the instruments God uses to do His work in the world.

God doesn’t need us to do anything, but He chooses to work through us for our benefit. As we joyfully and gratefully allow ourselves to be used as instruments for His work, we find our true purpose and identity.
