I heard a sermon not too long ago and a part that stood out to me was a line that said God loves us all as if we were His favorite. Not going to lie I feel like that all the time and then I think about how God has the capabilities to have intimate relationships with billions of people at the same time. Doesn’t that just blow your mind??! God can intimately know the thoughts, desires, hopes, and dreams of billions of people all at the same time! Sometimes I like to consider the greatness of God and all His creation to remind myself just how small I am and my problems are.
“How great is God—beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out…Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds, how he thunders from his pavilion?” (Job 36: 26, 29)
A God this big loves us, how encouraging.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10: 29-31)
That worth part is really resonating with me, we’re valuable. Even if people on this Earth don’t appreciate it; life is so short I think we should spend it with people that appreciate us and our value. You can’t pick your co-workers or family but you can pick your friends and significant others; make sure they value you ;)
