Read: Ephesians 3:14-19
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
I am not used to having high-profile people think about me and go out of their way to see if I am doing okay. By high-profile, I mean celebrities, government officials, etc. The truth is that it isn’t really practical for someone (or anyone for that matter) to constantly be there for everyone all the time. And in some cases, when people become high-profile, their status in society naturally rises, and when that happens, much of society and its people become “too-common” for their liking and not up to their standards.
Having been used to this kind of norm, it makes me think how crazy it is that God still wants to be there for me in my life at every moment of every day. Think about it, God is greater than any president on this planet. He is more famous than any celebrity there ever was and God will always be much bigger and better than anything there ever will be in the universe. He is much greater than me and next to Him, I feel so small and insignificant.
But when I start thinking those things about myself, He reminds me that I am important and I am wanted. How crazy is it that such a big God would want anything to do with me? How crazy is it that this “highest profile” being would go out of His way to make sure that I am doing well? And while it’s been some time since I first gave my life to Jesus, this love that Jesus has for me baffles me even to this day.
Whenever you are feeling lost and alone, don’t forget that God doesn’t want to be some casual acquaintance checking up on you when things seem convenient. He wants to be the One who comes into the center of your life and soul to ensure that you are being lifted up high among the mere things of this earth.
Let’s be reminded today that the greatest Person who ever lived, and continues to live to this day, wants to make a home in us. That’s how gracious and loving He is to us and that’s how important and significant we are to Him.
