As we go through our days, we have a God who is concerned about us and who knows our names. He loves each one of us, He wants only the best for us, and He wants each one of us to be in relationship with Him.
It is really amazing when you think about it; with all of the billions of people on this earth, God not only knows your name but He cares about you. I find that people sometimes forget about this or take it for granted. It’s like we know it on an intellectual basis, but we don’t always take it into account on a practical level. Sometimes I find that people seem to have the attitude that God only really cares about them when they die and that they are on their own while they live… OK, I’ll admit it: Sometimes that’s me!
Jesus taught otherwise:
‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
Our God is the God of the living! We are never alone!
To tell you the truth, I can’t really think of a better thing to keep in mind as we begin a new week. God loves you, cares about you and knows your name. Let’s go through this week with prayer, thanksgiving and praise for Him… and maybe, just maybe we might want to consult with Him as we go through our week of making decisions and choices and consider what He would have us to do. I have a pretty strong hunch that if we did this, we would have a better week…
