I want you to recall the probing words I spoke to Job, where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Everything that has existed since the beginning of time is a witness and testimony of my glory. You are never alone, for I am always with you.
The shining stars lit at night and hidden from view during the noonday sun reveal my omnipotent handiwork. The wildflower in the countryside, standing alone, sings praise in silence to the everlasting creator of the universe. All creation worships the one who is our Heavenly Father and Lord. Contemplate my natural glory and never feel alone. (God is Always Present)
Instead of feeling isolated and alone, I wrote you into the masterpiece of my eternal plan in the unfathomable expanse of the universe. As I plotted out the dimensions of the earth and its boundaries, you were always on my mind. My love for you extends throughout eternity into the highest heavens.
I pray that you become spiritually aware of my love and purpose for your life. So many of you focus on your failures and weaknesses that you miss out on why I created you. I made you in my image to be my sons and daughters and heirs of my kingdom. I came and dwelt among you so you could experience my love and the transforming power of my grace.
I want you to open your heart to me, respond to my grace, and walk with me day by day. Then when this life comes to an end, you will enter with me into the heavenly realm where there will be no more suffering and pain. Death and dying will vanish, and all that will remain will be the awareness of my everlasting kingdom. It is where you will live in the eternal now of my spirit united with me and in union with your loved ones forever. (Do not let Your Hearts be Troubled) Remember, you are never alone, for I am always with you.
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone— while the morning stars sang together, and all the angels shouted for joy? “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’? “Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it? Job 38:4-13 NIV
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ if indeed we share in his sufferings so that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. Romans 8:17-19 NIV
