…And so he awoke this man. Not because of the rising sun, not because of duty or physiology. No, he awoke because his Father touched something within him. Something that was placed within him from the very beginning. Before science could with any certainty tell his mother she was pregnant.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. ” – Jeremiah 1:5
God chose this man- me, just as He chose you. To awaken in us a love and a passion for Him that has been there since the beginning. From the moment of all creation He was thinking about you. He knew when you would come along, when you would choose to love Him back.
He knew that for a time you might forget Who’s you were. But He chose to keep loving you anyway. To keep loving me anyway. Not because of you or me, but inspite of you and me and any mistakes, misgivings or wrong turns.
For a time we may have said ‘I don’t want you’. That ‘I don’t love you anymore’ like a petulant child that can’t get their own way.
But He said ‘I will’ and ‘I do’ love you anyway.
Because I am your Father and I chose You and I will always continue to choose you because I Am. I have always been and always will be. And you have always been mine and will always be with me.
I remain utterly in awe of my Creator. Of my Heavenly Father that controls all things and brings all things into being by His perfect will for His purpose. I am His from the time He first flung the stars into place. Without my Father and His Divine purposes through His Son and by His Spirit I am nothing – a resounding gong.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. – 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
