“He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.”
Do you ever wonder as you go through overwhelming trials if you matter to God?
Read the verse above and think about it.
You do! He made your heart individually just for you! He calls you His
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
(I Peter 2:9)
He made you uniquely you and you do matter, even the hairs on your head are numbered.
"Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." (Luke 12:7)
So, if He has allowed an overwhelming trial, then it is for a good reason. Just like your own children, or even yourself as a child; do not always obey. When they do not obey it is not your fault and neither is it God's.
He gives us direction in the Bible; do you read it? Do you apply it? He also gives us free will and others use that to the disadvantage of others, but He promises us that He, "Will never leave us or forsake us."
God will use the bad times, incurred by others’ bad choices or our own, and turn it into something good.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
He promises to heal the brokenhearted; that is you and me.
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." (Psalm 147:3)
Do you matter? If you need more, look at the cross again. He was man in
the flesh and He felt all the pain and if you were the only one on earth, He
would have still came and still died. You are special!
"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?"
