So, I was in Harwich. I had never been there before which made it really strange that a girl came up to me in the street and said ‘do you remember me?’ Apparently, she had been in one of the schools in Colchester where I visit sometimes to talk in assemblies.
It was unusual conversation, because kids will sometimes say they recognize me (or that they think they recognize me) but this was the first time I can ever remember (but perhaps it has happened before and I forgot!) anyone asking if I remembered them. The school she was at has 240 children and there is very little chance of me knowing or remembering all of the children individually a few years down the line.
I can’t remember everyone I see in a crowd but God can.
The girl told me her name and I can remember it now a day or two on, but God knew her before I met her and he knows everything about her. WOW!
One of the reasons I follow and worship God is because he is so awesome and powerful. God knows everyone, he remembers us and hears us when we call on him. I find it hard to comprehend how that is possible but with God I believe that it is.
God remembers you. He loves you so much and he wants to be involved in your life.
How will we respond?
What difference will it make to you today knowing that God knows and remembers you?
