“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..”
~ Jeremiah 1:5a
Life can feel like a chaotic tornado or a giant game of chance. When it feels like our lives are stuck in a dangerous swamp of question marks, we worry about everything. When it feels like no one is in control or cares about us, we start making all the decisions ourselves…and we can make a real mess of our lives. But someone is in control, and someone does care!
God, the creator of the universe, knows you, loves you, and has plans for you! The Lord’s plans started before you were even born–even before this world was made. His plans for you included a manger where his son Jesus, the Savior of the World, was born. He planned Jesus’ rescue mission–his death and resurrection–so that he could save you from hell. His plan is that you will always be part of his family and live with him forever in heaven.
The Lord, who has known and planned those HUGE details for you, knows every little detail of your life as well. The Lord knows you. He loves you. His gift to you is the peace of knowing that you are his dear child and he cares about you!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, you know me better than I know myself. Help me to have faith in your loving care. Give me confidence that you know me, you love me and your plans for me culminate with my happy home in heaven with you. Amen.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16
