Objects of His Infinite Affection
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:16
Spurgeon writes, “Before we had a being in the world we had a being in His heart. When we were enemies to Him, He knew us, our misery, our madness, and our wickedness. When we wept bitterly in despairing repentance, and viewed Him only as a judge and a ruler, He viewed us as His brethren well beloved, and His bowels yearned towards us. He never mistook His chosen, but always beheld them as objects of His infinite affection.”
But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.” 2 Timothy 2:19
Father, You are my God. You knew me and know me. You love me despite my failings. You saved me out of the depths of Your love. You have my name in Your Book and I am Yours for always. One day, I will stand before You and will know the love that You have always had for me. Oh, how blessed I am to have You for my Father. Thank You, thank You. I am so very humbled. I feel so adored, so cared for because You are such a loving God. I have far to go in my walk with You but I want to be near You and to continue to learn to walk in Your Ways, to imitate You for I am Your child. I will stand firm on the Foundation of the Cornerstone. In the Name of Jesus, Your Son. Amen.
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. Ephesians 5:1
