Have you ever been asked on a job application just when you got your first tooth? Did an employer ever want to know how old you were when you took your first step, or what your first words were? The truth is, nobody really cares – but don’t tell that to your mother. She spent hours writing it all down in your baby book. She cherished every memory, told the stories over and over to all your friends and relatives until your were thoroughly embarrassed and sick of it all.
But because she loves you, because you are HER child, every detail of your life – even the most insignificant event – is precious to her. You know, your Heavenly Father loves you just as much, and even more! Though He is the Creator of the Universe, He is intimately acquainted with the most personal details of your life. The Psalmist exclaimed:
“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, O Lord… For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made… My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:1-4, 13-16)
You see, all of His children are precious in His sight!
