“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalms 56:8 NLT
God is fully aware of your life and its circumstances. He cares for you so deeply that He sees every tear that falls. This scripture says that He has them collected in His bottle. I can't fully comprehend how God does this but I believe He is able to do anything. “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!” Psalms 139:1-6 NLT
Regardless of my ability to wrap my mind around an infinite, all powerful, all knowing, ever present God, I trust Him. I am so glad that He is my Father and my friend. “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.” John 15:13-15 NLT “And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.” James 2:23 NLT
I am exceedingly comforted in the fact of His love and care for me. He, indeed, is my Father and friend!!Today, no matter what you are going through, trust that He is aware of, and able to actively work out, your situation. He is keenly aware of every detail of your life.
