How marvelous it is to see and be seen. With sight we delight in amazing color all that has been created for our pleasure. Our living God spoke — and all that is — was made manifest. Our Creator not only sees us, He has eyes that adore us and ears to hear our prayers.
Nathaniel asked “How do you know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree.” John 1:48 NIV Jesus is the exact image of God and we were created in God’s perfect image.
We may have felt invisible at home, or at work — as if our life does not count or exist. But our Father knows our thoughts before a word floats out of our mouth. Jesus saw and said of Nathaniel “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” Nathaniel must have been in a holy moment – a moment seen by God. Nobody else was there to see, fully persuaded, Nathaniel said “You are the Son of God!”
Jesus saw his inmost being- his heart laid bare. Our God lives and sees us. Regardless of how others treat you, you never have to feel unloved, unrecognized, or even invisible because your Savior sees your past, present, and future. Jesus knows your hopes, thoughts, fears, struggles, and wounds. God loves us sooo much, He sent Jesus to redeem us. John 3:16
Isaiah 46:4 “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. With whom will you compare Me or count Me equal? To whom will you liken Me that we may be compared?…Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please” ❤️
Psalm 119:130-135 “The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as You always do to those who love Your name. Direct my footsteps according to Your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey Your precepts. Make Your face shine on Your servant and teach me Your decrees.”
