“For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13 HCSB)
If I were to say that no one walking this Earth at this moment knows everything about us or loves us unconditionally, how would that make you feel? People around us only know as much as we show or tell them, and it is impossible for anyone to love us without limits solely in the strength of a human. God, however, knows everything about us, down to the number of hairs on our head. His love for us comes from the supernatural realm and has been present since the beginning of all creation. Crazy, right?
“My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began.” (Psalm 139:15 HCSB)
“Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows!” (Luke 12:6-7 HCSB)
“For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will.” (Ephesians 1:4-5 HCSB)
Through the scriptures above, we can see that being fully known and loved means that we are taken care of. God’s approval of life is all we ever need as believers, and we have it. Therefore, validation or lack thereof from anyone or anything isn’t a necessity in this lifetime.
As believers, the greatest choices we could make are to accept God as our Father and believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. In this, we have acknowledged that we are fully known and loved by the God who created us. These choices alone are the transformative pieces that assist us in bringing healing to the world around us.
