Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love……
Ephesians 1:4 MSG
I struggled to find what to write on today. It’s been a while since I’d posted any inspirational content and I felt like I should do more of that because that’s kind of why I started posting in the first place. I was scrolling on a few drafts I’d written months ago and I found this one. Nothing written in it but a verse.
It talks about God’s love and the fact that He has us in mind all the time. I know you’re wondering how can someone think about you all day. And not just you but tens of thousands, millions, billions of other people around the world. But yet it is true. God does have us in mind. Yes He is an extraordinary being but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have feelings. A lot of the Bible talks about how he’s compassionate, forgiving, he can get sad or angry- you know, basic human feelings. So it’s not out of place to see that he can think and has thoughts about you, and loves you.
Maybe today you’re feeling not so special. Maybe you’re not the prettiest or smartest person in your class or family and anyone hardly notices you. The world is quite huge and it’s easy to be go unnoticed all the time. But you know who does notice you? Jesus. And he has your best interests at heart. You really don’t need to be special to get God’s attention. Fact is you already have it. You’re special because He loves you and He has you in mind.
Even before the very foundations of the world were set, He had us in mind and settled on us as the focus of His love. That’s a lot to take in. Wow! Even before you existed you were precious to Him and he made you the very centre of His love. I don’t know about you but that, that is some deep stuff.
