Podcast #347: “Who Am I?” by NEEDTOBREATHE

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

I need a reset sometimes. Instead of looking at myself, I need to look up. Perhaps when I do, I can reset my perspective as I consider God’s greatness and my insignificance in comparison to Him. And yet, as NEEDTOBREATHE sings about in “Who Am I?”, and David writes about in the Psalms, God thinks of me and cares for me. Mind blown.

Let’s look up together and consider the heavens and the work of God’s fingers in Psalm 8.

On this episode I discuss:

This Week’s Challenge

Read Psalm 8 out loud. Read it repeatedly. Go outside at night and look up. Take in the majesty of the heavens and consider the work of God’s fingers. Watch the message by Louie Giglio to give you even greater perspective and images to consider as you meditate on the splendor of God and His creation. Only then should you look toward yourself and ask, “What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”
