I have heard it said that God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us, meaning that His eyes take in fully each one of us separately and He knows the needs of each one He has created fully!!! Our God is truly amazing and who can ever figure out how He does that, but He does sooo many amazing things such as keeping this world and universe all working well and giving to us our every breath of life!!! WOW!!! JUST WOW!!! LORD I AM AMAZED BY YOU!!!
One of the great examples of this phenomenon of amazing divine power is found in the Bible when the disciples of Christ were all gathered together in an upper room with a diverse group of people around them when the promised Holy Spirit that Jesus told them that they would receive after His resurrection became a reality!!! Oh our Father is a faithful One to His Word, for sure and the disciples were faithful to wait upon the Lord to bring what He had promised to them!!! When they received this amazing power of the Holy Spirit, these things happened:
- A noise came from heaven like a violent rushing wind that filled the whole house where they were sitting
- There appeared to them tongues of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them.
- They were all filled with the Holy Spirit
- They began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
- The devout men living in Jerusalem who had gathered from every nation under heaven were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language. They were amazed and astonished, saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born?”
The answer to their questions were that the all-amazing God of the Universe saw them each individually and He knew what each of their hearts needed to hear to have their hearts impacted supernaturally!!!
Now how wonderful is that to know that each one of us in this world is special to our Father and His desire is that every soul find saving faith and help in their Savior Jesus!!! He desires that none perish, but that all come to the saving knowledge of Him!!! Glory be to Him who is sooo full of love for each person He has created!!! More than anything, He desires that each person chooses forever life with Him and life walked out on this earth with His Holy Spirit leading and guiding them as an individual.
Given these thoughts, I want to encourage you as a saint, that Jesus understands YOUR heart individually as He does mine. He tells us in His Word:
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet He did not sin.”
He who understands each of us individually, who has began a good work in each one of us is going to complete it “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)
Part of that work that He does in each one of us is in giving us each individually the insight and empowerment we need to go thru our own personal life, but He is also at work thru YOU to do the amazing in the lives of others around you, knowing their individual needs of heart just like yours!!!
He will work thru you just like He did the first disciples to help others know Him as Savior and have what they individually need for life victory, too!!! I love this song here that speaks of how Jesus knows the needs of each heart!!! Not only does He know, but He provides the work of His Holy Spirit to do immeasurably beyond all we can ask or imagine!!! He says “Cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 What are the cares on your heart today, dear family??? What is His Spirit telling you about it as you faithfully look to His promised Holy Spirit help??? His promise:
“For you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Not only will we be His witnesses thru divine utterance and actions in the world where He has us, but we will also be a witness of His power amazingly at work in us, thru us and all around us that is beyond us!!! Now how exciting and amazing is that to be able to experience the God of the Universe with us in such a close, intimate love relationship as that!!!
Oh Jesus just makes me smile as an individual in sooo many ways!!! I praise Him for His faithfulness to us as His mighty powerfully equipped and provided for kids of faith who are delighted in by Him and loved forever with unfailing, unconditional love just as we each are!!! 🙂 Enjoy His faithful presence walking with YOU today, wherever you are!!! He sees you and is with you!!! Me, too!!!
