BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE WOMB I KNEW YOU,
BEFORE YOU WERE BORN I SET YOU APART.”
( JEREMIAH 1:5 *NIV )

Dear Friend,
Do you ever feel far from God?  Ever feel that He doesn’t
know, or even care, that you exist?  Well, God knows each
one of us intimately!  For just as He told the Prophet Jeremiah
above, He also knew us and formed each one of us in the
womb as well!

The Prophet David knew this when he said, O LORD,
YOU HAVE SEARCHED ME AND YOU KNOW ME.  YOU
KNOW  WHEN I SIT AND WHEN I RISE; YOU PERCEIVE
MY THOUGHTS FROM AFAR.  YOU DISCERN MY GOING
OUT AND MY LYING DOWN; YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH
ALL MY WAYS.  BEFORE A WORD IS ON MY TONGUE
YOU KNOW IT COMPLETELY.   ( PSALM 139:1-3 )

After all, YOU CREATED MY INMOST BEING; YOU KNIT
ME TOGETHER IN MY MOTHER’S WOMB.  I PRAISE YOU
BECAUSE I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
YOUR WORKS ARE WONDERFUL.  ALL THE DAYS
ORDAINED FOR ME WERE WRITTEN IN YOUR BOOK
BEFORE ONE OF THEM CAME TO BE.
( PSALM 139:13,14 & 16 )

Yes indeed Friend, God knows us Intimately and Loves
each of us as well!  
SO WE KNOW AND RELY ON THE LOVE
GOD HAS FOR US.  GOD IS LOVE.  WHOEVER LIVES IN
LOVE LIVES IN GOD, AND GOD IN HIM.
( 1 JOHN 4:16 )

Therefore the next time that you feel far from God and
think that He doesn’t know you exist, remember these
verses.  For after all your Heavenly Father truly is your
closest living relative, and He Loves You very much indeed!
Amen!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
