You are precious
Isaiah 43:4 - Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.
I once was sharing with a sister about how much the Lord loves her and that He can even give up the lives of many people for her. She became very uncomfortable about it, for she felt that if God created all people He would not do any thing like that, He loves everybody the same. I know most people will also think the same way.
Let me explain with a testimony. Once there was an evangelist who with his team was driving down from Mumbai to Goa for an outreach. He, as usual was a harsh driver who made people traveling with him to pray more. As they were traveling at a very high speed on the road, suddenly due to a wheel problem their vehicle stopped. They were wondering why this had happened to them, since they were already late to their destination. Just as their vehicle had stopped another vehicle from behind them, overtook them. Just before their eyes the vehicle from behind got hit by another from the opposite side which was rashly driven and all of the people in both the vehicles were badly hurt. Then they realized that had their vehicle not stopped they would have been those people in that accident. Even the way their vehicle had halted was miraculous, for at that speed which they were driving the vehicle should have somersaulted.
We may see many around you who are not God's children doing well in life, but we should not be envious of them. For when the time comes God will not care about them as much He care about us. They are just like the grass in the garden having fruit trees. The grass makes the garden look beautiful, but the eyes of the gardener are not on the grass but on the fruit trees; his joy is in them.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You love me so much that You are willing to give up the lives on many people for me. Forgive me for the times I felt lonely and sad thinking You do not love me. Let me from today always remember that your eyes are always on me, watching over me. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
