Look, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.
Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began. God, how difficult Your thoughts are for me to comprehend; how vast their sum is! If I counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand; when I wake up, I am still with You.
-Isaiah 49:16, Psalm 139:16-18
Do you know that God has you? God is very cognizant as to what you are going through. God knows all about you and your life.
Do you know that God cares about you? God cares about us as individuals. God knows about the trial or trouble, the joy or jubilation that you are living in right now.
God knows if you are bored, frustrated, depressed, or suicidal. God is intimately acquainted with each one of our lives and each one of us as unique individuals that he has created. God knows and God cares.
The Bible reminds us of this fact, and I am glad it does, because I think that we tend to forget. We forget that God knows and God cares. He is all-knowing and forever caring.
My life is written on the palms of Your hands.
Yes, God knows and cares. I need to be reminded of this. I need to remember.
Everything that I experience, God experiences with me. I am with God, even when I don’t remember that God is with me. God intimately knows my life.
When I experience disappointment, regret, emptiness, or frustration about my life; God is there with me. “You were here and I did not know it”, or, “There you are, with me… Oh, you are here.” Now that I realize you are here, I can live differently, by your love.
God believes in me. Will I believe in God? Yes I will.
Whatever challenge we face, God is with us. Don’t forget to realize that God is with you in what ever you are going through. God is the essential ingredient in our lives.
We at not left alone or just known from a distance. But God is with us in our lives. God counsels us, advocates for us, comforts us, empowers us, teaches us, and encourages us; all of the time.
Like the psalmist says, when you wake up, there God is, with you. We always want to be awakened to the awareness that God is with us. This is such good news, and we need to get it, to know it, and to live in it.
The only life I can live is the life lived by the faithfulness of God. If things are dreary, look for God’s faithfulness towards you. God is faithful, so I need to find it, count it, and walk in it.
He knows. Since I know he knows and sees and is with me, I want to be with him. I will lean into God in my life.
I will lean into God’s grace, God’s presence; knowing He knows and He cares. He has good gifts and plans for me, and the greatest good thing or gift is knowing Father’s love.
Yep, it is enough and the rest is all gravy, as they say.
