When we find ourselves in a crowd it is easy to think that we are just a number. You may discount yourself because you think you haven’t amounted to anything and no one knows you. You feel lonely because you think you are lost in the crowd. Beloved, that is a lie from the pit of hell. The scripture says that Jesus knows you by name. Think about that for a moment. Of the billions of people around the world today, God knows you by name. You are not just somebody; He knows your first, middle, and last name. He knows your location. He knows every single detail about you. He does not get you mixed up with others. Even the most identical twins are distinct people before Him. When He calls, He does not call in general; instead, He calls out to you specifically.
Take a moment to think about that again. Among the almost seven billion people in the world today, the Lord knows you by name. The Lord that upholds all things by the word of His power knows you by name. Does that grab you? Does it not make you go to sleep knowing that everything about you is covered? Stop worrying about things, because He will take care of you.
If He diligently takes care of the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, how much more will He care of you, since you have been made in His image and likeness? If He takes care of the animals, why then do you think He would not take care of you, for whom Jesus died? Don’t let the devil mess with your mind and lie to you by telling you that God is too busy with more important things or people to think about you. That is a lie from the pit of hell. You are a significant individual to God. He loves you and cares about you.
So rest in His undying love.
John 10:1-15, Hebrews 13:5-6
