God Relates With
“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows” (Luke 12:6-7).
Some people think God relates with them according to numbers. Some believe for instance, that if they have more people praying for them, God would respond to them faster. However, such people are ignorant of the Word and deficient in their understanding of the character of God. He doesn’t relate with you because you’re many; He relates with you according to your faith. For example, the fact that there’re several of you in the same predicament doesn’t mean God is obligated to do something about it. He’ll only respond to the one who reaches out to Him in faith.
The Bible lets us know that once upon a time, everyone in the world was destroyed by flood, with the exception of Noah and his family. It was Noah’s faith that singled him out for such a miracle, not because he had a large family: “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith”(Hebrews 11:7). Your faith is the basis of pleasing Him; it’s got nothing to do with numbers.
Life is personal, likewise your salvation and your relationship with God. Therefore don’t use the experiences of others to determine the flow of your life. It matters what you listen to and allow influence your mentality. That there’re many people in the world today who’re suffering doesn’t mean that should be your experience. You’re peculiar; you’re not among the masses. That something is affecting others doesn’t mean it should affect you.
Realize that God didn’t send Jesus to die for the world because we were many. If you were the only one on earth Jesus would still have come to die for you. God loves you that much—as a person. He knows your name and relates with you as a unique individual. This is one exciting thing about our relationship with Him; He relates with each and every one of us personally! He can do for you what He’s never done for anyone else, just because you required it and asked Him in faith.
Remember, you’re the only one of you that God has ever had and will ever have. You’re special to Him; that’s why He relates with you personally.
your Word has brought me wisdom and understanding, and I walk in the light of your truth that’s been implanted in my spirit today! Thank you Father, for making me such a peculiar treasure unto you, and for relating with me in my uniqueness. I appreciate the awesome fellowship I have with you, and the personal affection you have towards me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
Exodus 33:17: And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
Isaiah 49:16 (AMP) Behold, I have indelibly imprinted (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of My hands; [O Zion] your walls are continually before Me.
