It has been said that the current population of the world is between six to seven billion people. Yet you would think that with so many people, somewhere in the world is another individual identical to yourself.
But my friend, the amazing truth is that we serve a God who has set us all apart. We are all unique in many ways. Jeremiah 1:5 says, that even before you were formed in the womb, the Lord knew you and set you apart.
In the past, you may have thought, “I’m just ordinary.” “I’m not special, I have nothing that stands out.” No, your thinking should be, “I’m extraordinary. God has set me apart for a purpose.”
The scripture says in Luke 12:7 that even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Now, I must admit, I’m not a “numbers” person. There are some out there who are great with numbers. But I’ve never heard of a person who can number the hairs on their head.
So this passage of scripture gives us great confidence in God. It let’s us know that this same God, who can number the hairs on your head, has the power to set you apart out of six to seven billion people.
Not only has he set you apart but He has favored you. The psalmist says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. God loves you so much that even when all others around you are getting bad breaks, you will get the good breaks . Psalms 91:7 says, “A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.”
Know today that God has your best interests at heart. You are so special in His eyes that He causes you to prosper in everything to do. He wants to give you hope and a future. He cares so much for you that He’s had your steps ordered since before you were born. Take joy in knowing this today and watch your confidence soar to a new level as you charge forth on your journey of life!
