Do you remember your first sight as a baby? Probably not.
Our brains can only know and remember so much. What if you knew eyerything; what would you do? Would you become a surgeon who earns lots of money, or would you work at a Salvation Army and give all you have to the poor?
God knows everything. Every memory, every hair on our heads, every person’s past, present and future. I can not even remember the first thing I saw when I was born, let alone everyone else’s. Every person is poor in comparison with God. He is the richest in love, kindness and wisdom. All that God gives us is his “spare change” before we get to know Him, allowing us to live, eat and breathe, but when we actually get to know Him, all of His extraordinary devotedness, amazing enchantment and everything in-between is given to us as a gift wrapped in intelligence. When I look outside, or try to picture what heaven is like, I stand in awe of how small I am compared to the universe.
I have a question from all of this that I find the hardest to answer. Why did God choose us? He knows everything, all sins and sorrows, yet everyday He makes a decision to choose us. God is perfect, yet I sit here – imperfect – and wondering why.
Right now, I try to picture the astounding glory of God, but I can’t. For me, everything around the Christian topic is mind blowing. After a while of trying to imagine how big this universe is, I have to stop myself because it is never-ending, just like God’s love for us; it never stops.
Right now, even though it may not feel like it, we are protected by an everlasting barrier of protection from Satan as long as we choose God. I do not see any other choice, I will always want a Saviour who is loyal, sacrificial and has eternally saved me from my own sins.
11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”
1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
I am astounded by these thoughts. That the Holder of all Knowledge would choose me, again and again. Every single day.
