|"I tell them Jesus was wounded...wounded|
for my transgressions.
He was bruised…bruised...for my inequities.
They're gonna know that it's true, true, true,
They're gonna know that it's true.
They've got to know that it's true, true, true.
They've got to know that it's true.
Jesus…He was sent from the Father.
Jesus…He's the Great Messiah.
Jesus…He’s bread for the hungry.
Jesus…He’s water for the thirsty.
Jesus…He’s friend to the friendless.
Jesus…He’s hope for the hopeless.
Jesus…He rose from the dead.
Jesus…just like He said.
Every knee shall bow…every tongue confess
Jesus is Lord (they’re gonna find out)
Jesus is Lord!"      --Lyrics by Andrae' Crouch
|Have you ever had the thought that your life is insignificant, unimportant or simply doesn't matter? Ever felt like you're going through life's revolving door? Sometimes our circumstances or fears create these thoughts. Sometimes it's our relationship(s) or lack thereof. Nothing you do appears to matter. Those around you don’t seem to care whether you're here or gone.|
I look to the hills from where my help comes from; my help comes from the Lord. I look to Calvary, and I see the Savior of all humanity, hanging on the cross, sacrificially for me. The blood that Jesus shed shall never lose its power to reach beyond mountains and valleys, finding me no matter what the circumstance may be.
It’s the Father's way of assuring me that He sees me where I am; weak and helpless.
Its God's way of saying to me with words wrapped in love and grace:
“I see you”.
It's important that I know God sees me; He's not blind to my circumstance. Family, friends, colleagues may be oblivious to what I'm going through, but God says:
“I see you”.
His eyes are constantly watching over my life. It's why He told Moses to tell all the Israelites, “…I will be your God.”
It's why He revealed to the prophets, the coming of the Messiah. It's why a virgin named Mary gave birth to Jesus. The fact that God sees me reveals His love and concern. Through the resurrection of Christ and the power of the endwelling Holy Spirit, God fully invests Himself into your life. God's committed to you!
The next time you feel insignificant, listen to God say:
“I see you”.
Those three words will reveal an infinite capacity of love and grace which overshadows anything you could possibly face in this life. What can separate you from the love of God when He sees you always? He never loses sight of you. You are never misplaced by God. Whatever you're going through, just know, God sees you.
Because God can see you, He hears and cares about you.
An insurance company reminds us that with them, “we’re in good hands...”.
But whose hands are we really in?
Is there ever a time when our life exceeds the reach of God?
God cares...He says...I see you!
