Stop and think about it…

Certainly you made my mind and heart;
you wove me together in my mother’s womb.
I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing.
You knew me thoroughly;
my bones were not hidden from you,
when I was made in secret
and sewed together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb.
All the days ordained for me
were recorded in your scroll
before one of them came into existence.
-Psalm 139:13-16 (NET)

Have you ever stopped to think about how incredible it is that the Creator of the universe [and all that exists] knows you personally? The very fact that He knows us and has chosen us before the foundation of the world is mind-boggling for a mere mortal to comprehend without the intervention of the Holy Spirit in opening our eyes.

Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. For he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished in his sight in love. -Ephesians 1:3-4 (NET)

It is a blessing to know that you have been chosen by God to be a part of His family through the work of Christ on the cross. Moreover, He shows us that we really have nothing to do with receiving salvation, apart from making a choice that we cannot help but make. To become aware of the awesome Creator of the universe and feel His love for us makes Him really impossible for us to resist. Who would not wish to know Him if they were truly aware of Him and all He has done for us? Remember the words Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians: For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast. -Ephesians 2:8-9 (NET)
