You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?
Do you ever stop and wonder how He does it, or maybe you just see verses like the one above as a “figure of speech” and you ignore it? After all, why would he keep track of every single tear you have cried and with so many people in the world……. why you? Why would you matter in the midst of all the “big” stuff going on?
You matter because He loves you and He created you with a purpose in mind! God created us in His image, not the other way around and yet so often we see Him with our limitations! God has no limitations!
One of my daughters just had her third child and well, if you have had 3 children, you understand you haven’t just “added a child” to the family! She is learning how to juggle having one ill that is older and typically her helper and then she has a 2 year old who is healthy and fast and precious and of course wants her attention too and then of course infants are unpredictable and totally helpless so there are days that you find that is all you do; go from one child to the next trying to meet their needs. She does a great job and I remember those days when she was a baby and I had 2 others who were 4 and 2 and that is why it is best to have children when you are young! 🙂 If just juggling 3 or more children is sometimes an overwhelming task then how could God possibly care about every single individual on earth?
Have you ever had anyone tell you: “Even if you were the only person on earth, God would have sent His Son to die for you”, I can remember someone telling me that once, trying to stress how much God cared for me. I remember thinking; “Right, how silly is that!” Well, here is the deal: God is Big Enough! God is big enough and there is enough of Him to be able to focus on you as though you are the only person alive! God can pay attention to your life like you are the only person He has to focus on and He can love you that way as well! God has no limits! There are no boundaries for Him. He is not held back, only able to focus on one person or thing at a time, if He was the whole world would fall apart! Matthew 26:26 says, “Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than them?” He doesn’t miss a thing! He loves you and is right beside you and He sees everything!
Now, knowing that He cares, knowing that He loves you and is focused on you as though you are the only person alive, remember that He is listening, He is working, He has a plan and He will see you through anything you may ever face! You are not alone! There is nothing that can be too difficult for the Lord! He is Big Enough for whatever you struggle with and He truly cares about every single detail of your life! Focus on Him today ~ The best is yet to come!
