When you feel small and insignificant, look to the One who eternally holds you in His hands, who numbers even the stars and knows them by name. He knows even the number of hairs on your head, and you are precious to Him.
From Genesis to Revelation, the Scriptures enumerate God’s thoughts on the human person — specifically, that they are infinitely valuable as His image-bearers.
“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:6-7). This is our imperative; plant, water, and wait in humility for God to give growth.
We have only a moment in this life before dwelling with our Father and Savior for all of eternity—what immense hope this brings!
The apostle Paul expresses a longing to “preach the gospel… not where Christ has already been named.” Like the apostle, we have been sent to a people who have not heard the name of Christ.
