I liked the following written by Selwyn in today’s study: “God has carved you upon the palms of His hands. The great God who sustains the universe thinks continually of you.The Almighty can never forget you or overlook you. It’s just not possible.
So when next the hurricane of unbelief comes crashing into your life and you find it hard to believe you are of consequence in heaven because you are of such little consequence on earth, throw your anchor into the dark depths that surround the cross and I promise you, you will find a firm anchor point for your soul.”
In the Bible, there are a number of examples where we find support for the truth that each person is special to God. In Luke 158-10 (NIV), we read: “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
It’s important to take hold of the truth that God has a personal relationship with each one of His followers; we are not lost in the cloud of believers. When Jesus looks at His church – He sees each one of us, as individuals – all our thoughts, words and actions are known by our Creator, God.
