This week I've been in Job. The oldest of all the text of Scripture hammers home the simplest, most massive foundation stone of life... that God is God and I am not.

What's really amazing to me is that God cares at all about us.

I mean really... think about it... I must be the rough equivalent of a super-miniature ant, size-wise, compared to His massiveness. Why does He care, concern Himself, much less love us???

Yesterday I asked God about something that was massive from my temporal, human perspective, and He showed me quickly about His great love for me... He stepped right into my comparatively insignificant minutia, which of course is huge at my little level, and showed me His love and faithfulness. It was really cool!

Job asked God why He would give a rip about man, too (check out chapter 7). In the end, it is enough that God does, that God loves, that God chooses to involve with us. He is God. Through good and bad, He is God. Through the sun on our faces to the dirt on our knees, He is God. Sometimes it feels great, and sometimes it hurts for no discernable reason, but He is still God.

For this miniature ant, that's enough... its simply amazing that He actually cares!
