Just because there is a crowd doesn’t mean Jesus has no idea of your presence. He sees you all the time. He knows how you feel and what your needs are before you can tell Him anything.
When God thought of you before the foundations of the world, He did not send you to the planet to get lost, literally or spiritually.
Jesus was born to an unknown Mary from an (insignificant) town called Nazareth. Nathanael was shocked to know that something good could come out of Nazareth (John 1:45,46). Jesus testified about Nathanael as a man without guile (John 1:47).
The 12 disciples got chosen among a multitude of Jews. Remember, the disciples weren’t the creme de la creme. They were an insignificant lot.
The woman with the issue of blood was in a huge crowd that thronged Jesus. Yet, Jesus asked, “Who touched my clothes?” and met the woman personally.
Zacchaeus, to avoid the crowd, went up a tree. Despite the gathering, Jesus chose to go to his house.
Even when crowds thronged Jesus, God directed Jesus according to His perfect will. Jesus’ compassion manifested according to the leading of God as Jesus only said and did what His Father told Him.
You are a chosen generation, dear believer.
He chose you in a world of over 8 billion. You are precious in God’s sight.
Your salvation wasn’t a coincidence.
You are God’s choice. Know your identity in Christ Jesus (1 Peter 2:9).
He pulled you out from terrible darkness into His marvellous light. Now, you can pull others out of hell by telling the world about Him. Surrender yourself daily to the One who makes us whole.
Don’t you want to serve Him? Keep Him first, and He will keep you faithfully till the end. Maranatha, Praise God, and Amen.
