Remove people from this world, and what do you have left? Nothing. The plant life would die. The animals would die, and there would be nothing left but a wasteland devoid of life. So, technically, the world does revolve around you.
If there were no humans, God would still be God, but creation would cease to exist if you were not here. God will never give up on you because you are that important to Him.
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. (Romans 8:19-22 – NKJV).
When man fell, creation fell. God subjected creation to man so creation does not rule over man. Creation can never return to its full capacity and functionality without the emergence of the matured sons of God. Neither can God operate in His fullest capacity and functionality without the emergence of the matured sons of God.
If it was God’s job to fix creation, then creation would have been fixed and the world would have been better. But it’s not His job, so God is waiting on the same thing creation is waiting on. But God has not left us as orphans.
We are chosen, royal, holy and special, and because we are God’s gift, He assumes the responsibility to take us through the process to maturity. The giver of the gift is always the one who determines the condition and value of the gift.
