God Really Cares for Each of Us

 Although the picture today might make you reach for a sweater, there is a certain peacefulness and quiet in just contemplating the snow by moonlight, and by being aware of the beauty of the moon and snow. Sink into quiet and then begin to talk to God and listen to Him. 

One of my favorite passages is from Isaiah 43: 1-5

"But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel; do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

I give Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in exchange for you.

Because you are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you.

I give people in return for you, nations in exchange for your life.

Do not fear, for I am with you."

God is speaking these words to each of us still today. God wants to deepen our relationship and this is the time to allow Him to do so by sitting with Him as one friend does with another.
