OUR LORD WHO KNOWS US
Our God is truly the Almighty God. His Kingdom is ruled in the midst of His enemies as described in Psalm 110 verse 1 - 2 "A Psalm of David. The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.” The LORD extends Your mighty scepter from Zion: “Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
One of the most illuminating aspects of His administrative strength is that He administrates His Kingdom on a person-by-person basis even while those He rules are embedded in a hostile world that is controlled by His enemies and the enemies of His people.
With this astounding administrative power, each person is individually known and planned for in the realm of God's Kingdom. As mentioned in Jeremiah 1 verse 5 “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.”
The Kingdom of God is founded on righteousness and thus each member of this Kingdom is routed through a rigorous path of trials and tests to get each human to a state where they exemplify the righteousness of Jesus. These paths are custom tailored for each person and a great deal of attention is paid to the progress of each individual.
To effectively make decisions regarding each human being's destiny, a vast store of knowledge about each one must be known. That is why the book of Mathew tells us, “Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. “So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
We are individually known by our Lord in heaven to a far greater degree than we generally believe.
Seek to take advantage of the humbling privilege we are offered of knowing Him back.
