Like we needed more reasons to praise God, this Psalmist makes a big deal of praising the incomparable Creator of the Universe. The reason? As great as He is, He still looks at those in lowly conditions and picks them up.
This is more than rags to riches, this is not about turning a pauper into a multimillionaire. This is about a shepherd boy out in the middle of nowhere with no one considering him. This is about a young virgin of no repute with no one considering her. This is about the stuttering farm boy in the back of the building shuffling his feet awkwardly with no one considering him. This is about a paralysed beggar outside a temple passed by more often than not with no one considering him. This is about a girl taken into a foreign country with only her Uncle for support and no one considering her.
It’s great news that our God sees and hears and makes radical transformation in the unlikely circumstances, because that’s just the kind of loving incomparable Creator of the Universe we serve.
It’s another reason why I love Him because He is in the habit of seeing the lowly and picking them up.
For His Name’s Sake
