Today, I wanted to continue the post from yesterday. Sometimes, it seems like God pops up in unexpected ways, and it’s easy for us to think “Oh, that was just a random thing.” or, “Did I really hear from God? Maybe it was just a fluke.”
So, to clarify my misguided thinking, God sometimes goes out of His way to say “hello” – again. This happened to me recently, as evidenced by the second license plate that I observed while out running some errands.
Today, I am grateful that God is persistent. I am touched by the lengths to which He seems to go to get my attention, and to remind me that I am very much on His mind.
I have to remember that I am very significant in the eyes of God. My struggle often is this: Do I view myself the way that God sees me? And if not, then why?
Here is my prayer for today: Dear Lord, thank You for saying “hello” again. I appreciate Your thoughtfulness. Thank You also for the reminder that I am very important in Your eyes. Give me the wisdom and grace to view myself the way that You view me. Thank You also for taking the initiative to reach out to me – often when I am preoccupied with other things, people, or circumstances – with the timeless reminder that You love me. In Your name I pray, Amen.
