Your heart is heavy, your unanswered prayers still hang in the air.
You try to gather your thoughts, and piece together what is going on.
How can things be like this?
After a sleepless night staring at the stars, you now leave the house, the low morning sunlight hits your face.
You find yourself silently questioning:
Why does He no longer listen?
Has he forgotten about me?
Does he still see me?
First know this, no matter how much it feels like it, you are not alone in this.
Every Christian you know, they also have been through this.
Share with them your situation.
But, there is even greater news, read Psalm 147, even just the first 5 verses.
The stars that you spent last night looking at through tears, the sun that lit-up your downcast face this morning, even the breath with which you cried out in desperation, all of this is maintained, perfectly controlled, and totally known to your sovereign God.
Look at verse 4, your God and Saviour not only made the stars, but he has numbered and named every one.
Stars that we will never see, that we will never even know that exist, He knows and has numbered them.
Just a small glimpse into the total power of our eternal God.
The one who controls the whole universe; every galaxy, star, and atom, is the same God also described in verse 3.
If He has saved you, then He has not forgotten you.
The One who sees all things, He still sees and knows you.
He will not abandon you, He will never forget you. You are His precious child, redeemed by the blood of your Saviour.
You are His for eternity, nothing can seperate you from His all powerful hold.
Keep on praying, keep on reading His word, keep on joining to worship with your brothers and sisters.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up your wounds.
Keep on fighting, keep on the race, keep on serving and worshipping your King.
The God of the universe, of life, of time and reality itself. He is the same God that saved you, whilst you were dead in your sins, a rebel against Him.
The same God that turned your heart from stone to one of flesh, the one who sent His beloved Son to suffer, die, and endure His wrath and punishment on your behalf.
He keeps you, and will keep you, until the calls you home to be with Him for eternity.
This is your Saviour and your God.
“I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
— Luke 12 : 4 – 7
