“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” Psalm 139:16
Have you ever half-watched a television show or movie? Maybe you came in after the first few minutes were already over. Later on something happens that you are supposed to care about, but since you hadn’t been paying attention from the beginning, it didn’t have the same effect on you.
You weren’t interested because you weren’t invested in the story. You hadn’t put time and effort into it from the start.
Thankfully, we serve a God who has known us from the very start of our lives – in fact, He has known us since before we were born! He is interested in us and has been invested in us before we knew Him. It doesn’t matter if you begin your relationship with Him when you are four years old or eighty four. He has known you all along.
What a comfort to know that the God of the universe is invested in us, just one of billions and billions of people who have lived here on earth. We can reach out to Him because He has been there since the start and beyond. He is invested in our lives, now and in the future.
