My sister, He was right there.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…” Jeremiah 1:5, New Living Translation
One day the Lord asked me, what is your earliest memory of Me demonstrating My love for you? I said when I received you in my heart at 12 years old at that church revival. He then said I need you to think further back. He took me all the way back to my birth. He said I was with you when you were alone in an incubator for three months as a premature baby. I made sure the doctors and nurses took great care of you. Then He walked me through every moment of my childhood and my teen years until now. He said, your entire life is a demonstration of My intense love, My special care, and My intentional grace.
What is your earliest memory of when the Lord demonstrated His love for you? Take a moment to think further back. Let the Lord guide you through your life and show you that He was with you in every moment from your birth to now. Way before you surrendered your life to Him, He was right there.
Now would be a good time to say, thank you, Lord.
Prayer: Thank you, Lord. You were with me in my mother’s womb. When I took my first breath, you were right there. You made sure nothing would stop me from being here. Before I knew anything about you, you knew everything about me, and you still loved me. As I grew, you demonstrated your love in how you comforted me, protected me, and helped me get through every moment of my life. Thank you for your intense love, your special care, and your intentional grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
