Then, right there in the grocery store parking lot, a stranger hands me a half dozen red roses. A mission of joy, she called it. And, I know. As sure as I know that it was my child that knocked over the Kool-Aid display on aisle three, I know it was Him.
I could barely contain my excitement. It was God sending a message: I see you…
He is still the God who sees.
On those days when you fear you are invisible – He sees you.
On those days when you wish you were invisible? Yeah, He sees you then, too.
This extraordinary knowledge is beyond me.
It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.
Where can I go to escape Your Spirit?
Where can I flee from Your presence?
If I go up to heaven, You are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there. - Psalm 139:6-8
Nothing about you is unseen or unknown by the One who created you, my friend. He knows your heart and your every thought. That dream you’re afraid to even speak of aloud? He knows all about it and He’s cheering you on.
So, I took those roses home and placed them on the kitchen table. Yes, that is a Pedialyte bottle (see above reference to sick children.) I didn’t have a vase handy because, well, I wasn’t expecting to be seen today.
There I was, going about my business, and He stepped right into my day. Isn’t that just like Him?
He had His eye on me the whole time.
Wherever today finds you, He is there. Whatever you must face, He is there.
You are the apple of His eye.
He sees you.
