O how He loves and cares for you and me! God made us in His image and according to His likeness, to reflect His glory. What a high calling!
"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You." (Psalm 139:13-18)
Lord God, thank You for Your everlasting love and for redeeming us, seeing that we all have fallen short of the glory for which we were created, and like sheep, gone astray from Your purpose for our lives. Thank You for Your precious and innumerable thoughts towards us. Thank You for the joy of Your salvation, and the power to do your will. Thank You that we can live in Your presence now and forevermore. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.
