In the beginning God created . . .

The very fact that of our existence is not a chance, not a random occurrence by the blending of gases and molecules, but a choice. . .a choice by God.  The Lord God made a choice to create each of us.

"Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee..." (Isaiah 44:2)

All of us at some time are tempted to believe we have no worth or value, that our life may pass without any significnce to the world whatsoever.  In those moments, we must remember that before we were even born, our name was on the mind of God:

"The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name."  (Isaiah 49:1)

He has not made us in vain.  He continues to work in each of our lives that which is "well pleasing in His sight" and to do and to will of "His good pleasure."  Although created "a little lower than the angels", He has crowned us with "glory and honor" and given His most beloved Son that we might dwell with Him in glory eternally.

"What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour."  (Psalms 8:4,5)
