“You have recorded my troubles. You have kept a list of my tears.” Psalm 56:8
“God knows you. He has written your name on His hand and keeps a list of your tears.” Isaiah 49: 16; Psalm 56:8
God knows you. And He is near you! How far is the shepherd from the sheep (John 10:14)? The branch from the vine (John 15:5)? That’s how far God is from you. He is near. See how these four words look taped to your bathroom mirror. “GOD is on My SIDE” (Psalm 56:9)
And His kingdom needs you. The poor need you; the lonely need you; the church needs you…. the cause of God needs you. You are part of the purposes He is working out in the world (Ephesians 1:11). The kingdom needs you to discover and deploy your unique skill. Use it to make much out of God. Get the Word out. God is with us, we are not alone.
