We trust that God loves the whole world but ever tempted to doubt that He loves you individually? No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. 1 Cor. 10:13 So you know if you’ve been tempted to doubt His love for you, you are not alone.
God says, I will not forget you! (See the exclamation point on the end!) See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hand; your walls are ever before me. Isaiah 49:15-16 I could sign off right here! Message seems pretty clear to me YOU are engraved on His palm through the nail that pierced it… His love kept Him on the cross for YOU. He knit your body together in your mothers womb and had plans for you before you were born… your body, YOUR INDIVIDUAL walls, are ever before Him!!
Peace I leave with you (insert your name); my peace I give you (insert your name). I do not give to you as the world gives. (Sounds like a separation between you and the rest of the world… He sees the whole world and yet He sees YOU in the big world!) Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 Believe and not doubt as if being tossed on the waves… be still and know.
In Numbers 1:5-15 God tells Moses to call out certain individuals BY NAME to be leaders in each clan and there were THOUSANDS of people. Verse 17 states, Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been given... GIVEN to them by God who knew their individual names! The God that was into knowing individual names back then, knows and cares about your name now!
Further research indicates that most of those names given to Moses contain a reference to God. So I’m no bible scholar but lining them all up in the order God called them to be I just might be inclined to believe He wrote us a love note in disguise that goes something like this…
Before the beginning of time I knew you
You are a gift from My hand to this world, I created you
I am your Father
I am your Strength
I am your Peace
I will increase as you need – I am all sufficient for you
I hear you
This world is hard but My reward is more than you can comprehend – stand firm
I am a just God – you will not be destroyed
You are not alone
I intercede on your behalf – I see you
I am your Shepherd – you are part of My family – My child – I know your name – you. are. loved.
