All through HIS WORD GOD makes it clear that He knows everything about us:
The number of hairs on our heads
He knew us before we were conceived
He chose us when He planned creation
He determined the exact time of our birth
The days of our lives are written in His book
Every good gift comes from His hand
He loves us with an everlasting love
His thoughts about us are more than the sand of the seashore
He rejoices over us by singing
Didn’t my (Holocaust Survivor) parents both know and understand this?
The answer is no.
The One True God says to each of us:
I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He is the exact representation of my being. He came to demonstrate that I am for you not against you and to tell you that I am not counting your sins.
My Son died so that you and I could be reconciled. His death on the Cross-was the ultimate expression of my love for you. I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.
Receive my son as your savior and nothing will ever separate you from my love again…and you can come home to me.
My mother spent the last year of her life in a nursing home with a feeding tube in her. She was in a fetal position and the only reflection of life you could see was in her eyes.
I visited my mother two days before she died. I wiped away the tears from her eyes… and said goodbye.
The last time I saw my father alive he was crying. I said what is wrong. He said he felt pain in his heart that he was leaving me alone in the world. He said he loved me deeply.
God in his mercy to me sparked the flame of eternal life in my mind and heart after my parent’s death. It took their death’s to place my feet onto the road to life in Christ.
I have learned through those I love that out of death God brings forth life. And out of pain God grants wisdom.
This is the Promise of the ONE TRUE and Living God to all His children…to all those precious in His sight,to all those that come to HIM through HIS SON…that He is still on the Throne and He is involved in every detail of your life.
He knew you before the foundations of the earth were formed, and He called you into existence in eternity past. He will hold you in the palm of His hand until the day He takes you home to be with HIM in the future.
We are creatures of time,created by God for eternity. Today we live from one God Moment to another. In eternity we will live IN THE MOMENT, forever with God.
May HIS Joy and HIS Shalom fill all the days of your life as you live to fulfill HIS purposes for your life.
Amen and Amen
