His name is Dnyan, and he considers himself a student of the world. And this is a very big school, he says of all the cities and towns hes passed through. He began a four-year journey on his bicycle in 2016 to meet and learn from people. When theres a language barrier, he finds that sometimes people can understand just by looking at each other. He also depends on a translation app on his phone to communicate. He doesnt measure his journey in the miles hes traveled or the sights hes seen. Instead, he measures it in the people whove left an imprint on his heart: Maybe I do not know your language, but I would like to find out who you are.
Its a very big world, yet God knows everything about it and the people in itfully and completely. The psalmist David was in awe of God when he considered all the works of His hands: the making of the heavens, the moon, and the stars (Psalm 8:3). He wondered, What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? (v. 4).
God knows you more thoroughly than anyone else possibly can and He cares for you. We can only respond, Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! (vv. 1, 9).
