1 Peter 1.1-2
Not one is missing, not one forgotten. God the Father has his eye on each of you.
wow, lord! what a huge assurance of SECURITY and LOVE that we have in you. YOU NEVER FORGET ABOUT US, you never miss a thing! and you have your eye not just on all of us, but on EACH of us. you know our every breath, every sigh, what have we done to have such attention from the mighty kung of the universe? nothing. because your attention on us is not because we are WORTHY, but because YOU GAVE YOUR LOVE when we were yet unworthy. the focus is not about us being worthy, but about you loving us in the first place. thank you lord! your word goes on to say, "God the Father has his eye on each of you, and has determined by the work of the Spirit to keep you obedient through the sacrifice of Jesus." amen! what a SPECIFIC, TIMELY answer to your very prayer! READ THAT PART AGAIN! God HIMSELF is what? he's DETERMINED to what? to KEEP YOU OBEDIENT! he himself WILL MAKE SURE that YOU CAN OBEY HIM! no more wishing for the ability to be able to obey him or what, YOU ALREADY ARE GUARANTEED! amen! how? BY WHAT JESUS DID - through the sacrifice of Jesus! he cares! he doesn't miss a thing! he never forgets!
