You know those moments when you set out to read something in the word and you just can't get past a verse?! Having one of those moments - “I, Peter, am an apostle on assignment by Jesus, the Messiah, writing to exiles scattered to the four winds. Not one is missing, not one forgotten. God the Father has his eye on each of you, and has determined by the work of the Spirit to keep you obedient through the sacrifice of Jesus. May everything good from God be yours!” 1 Peter 1:1-2 MSG
Not one missing. Not one forgotten... God knows, he's watching, he sees you. He sees your situation. He sees your frustration. He has his eye on you... I could spend all day in these verses. Let that truth go deep. HE has determined to keep us on track. He's doing it for us.
You are known in this moment. You are not forgotten. Regardless of where you might have been scattered to, you are not forgotten. There is no accident in your world.
And may everything good from God be yours. Er hello. Everything good. Everything. Peace, joy, love, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control... Everything good. Yours. From God to you. A personal gift.
So go head high today, stand tall, because you are known, you are not forgotten. God has his eye on you and he's determined to work in your world.
El Roi - the God who sees - sees you. “She answered GOD by name, praying to the God who spoke to her, “You’re the God who sees me! “Yes! He saw me; and then I saw him!””
Genesis 16:13 MSG He sees. He speaks. He determines. He acts.
