In the last post I wrote about finding God’s love and purpose for your life.
It is so easy yet so many make it so difficult.
In the Bible which is the Word of God it tells us we are loved many times.
It tells us that God knew us before we were even born. How awesome is that?
Psalm 139:13-16
[You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.]
Isn’t that amazing? God can see and observe us way before we are known.
When my own babies were expected the technology was not so great but I was able to see the image in black and white and shades of grey. We knew our daughter was upside down and very comfortable to stay there. Now with even better technology they can do 2,3 and even 4 dimension ultrasounds so precise that one can see hairs on the babies head and feathery eyelashes.
That is how God saw us.
Psalm 139:17-18
[How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them: they out number the grains of sand! When I wake up you are still with me!]
What a beautiful image.
We are at the beach every week and walking on the sand is a part of our visit. There are many grains of sand. You couldn’t begin to count them. I think that is the whole point of this verse.
In Psalm 143:8-9
[Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk for I give myself to you.]
In order for us to truly take in and accept HIS divine love for us; we not only need to trust Him and also believe in His promises to us.
Ephesians 3:18-19
[And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.]
It is simple and yet so hard to believe at times.
He said, in John 14:23
[“Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”]
Jeremiah 31:3
[I have loved you with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.]
The choice remains for us. Believe it to be true or not believe it at all.
The choice we make will determine our direction. It’s that easy.
