Our great God, who “measured the waters in the hollow of his hand”(Isa. 40:12) has singled out each person on this Earth as supremely important, as we are made in his image. And, he created everything for our enjoyment (Tim. 6:17). God cares especially for each of us, as he says in Psalm 139. “Lord, thank you that you find me valuable and thank you, also, for the greatness of your love for me!”
