Does God know me?

 
Dear friend,
He knows you better than you know yourself.
 
Does he have millions of billions of children?
totally
Is His schedule always full of things to do?
probably
Does this mean He doesn't have time to know you?
not at all
 
I think there are times in our lives when it is very clear God is aware of us, and then there are others when our music is cranking, our blindfolds are on and we can't feel a thing. When we're like this its no wonder we start to second guess if God knows us. As soon as we wonder if God knows us a terrible awful cycle begins and it goes something like this: (I call it our Identity Crisis Cycle)
 
See? Things go downhill pretty fast unless we can figure these things out quickly.
 
There's a story I've always loved about the son of King Louis XVI of France. As a young man he was kidnapped by evil men who had dethroned his father, the king. These men then proceeded to do all they could to make the young man forget who he was and what he was destined to inherit. For 6 months they subjected him to every vile thing life had to offer and yet he never gave in. Finally, after doing all they could think of and still not seeing any progress with their plot, his captors asked him why he had resisted. His reply has been somewhat of a motto for me, something I've remembered and tried to apply to myself. He said: "I cannot do what you ask, for I was born to be a king."
Remember that! God is your Father and you are of royal birth. If we think that God doesn't know us, then we definitely can't know ourselves. The noble birthright of being children of God allows us distinct and powerful rights that we could obtain through no other lineage.
 
In one of my brother's favorite movies growing up, "The Lion King", Simba cries up to the heavens: "You said you would always be there for me!" Sound familiar? In essence, Simba says: "Where are you? Are you real? Were you ever real? Do you know me anymore?" Its then that the deceased king visits him and says to his very lost, very alone son: "You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become....remember who you are...remember who you are."
 
My friend, God knows you, He loves you, and he will do just about anything to show you. He hasn't forgotten you or left you high and dry to deal with evil captors or nasty hyena's; He is with you, on your right and on your left. Don't be like Simba, don't forget who your Father is and that He loves you. Remember who you are, and that God will never forget you.
 
With much love,
Miss Mormon
