Daily Scripture

For you yourself created my inmost parts;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139 v 12)

Daily Reflection

Does God love me? Does He notice me? Does He even know me?

If these are questions you have ever asked yourself, you will find the answer in this Psalm. It is Yes, Yes and Yes!

God made it His business to know you, even before you were born. He took great care over creating you, and He did it with the utmost love for you. He waited eagerly for your birth, and longed to gaze at your face, as any human father would.

As you have travelled through life, God has never taken his loving gaze from you. When you have suffered, He has suffered with you; when you have succeeded, He has rejoiced with you. He is always waiting... for you to turn towards Him, and look for His face. This is the very human, and yet fully divine God of the Bible.
