Ever felt that no one really knows you – the real you deep down inside? The you that includes the good and the bad that goes on in your head.
The great news is that God knows you. He even knows you better than you know yourself.
God says: 'I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb'. Just think about that - before anyone else knew you, God did. He cares for you and loves you. There is nowhere you've ever been that he hasn't been right there with you.
Listen to what a guy wrote in the Bible: '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 before I even say it.'
Wow! God sees all we do. If we are honest, that makes it all the more incredible that God would want to be in a relationship with us. We know what we are like on the inside. We know that we have all messed up and made mistakes. Despite this God still loves us.
Most of all he wants to be in a relationship with you. You can know his acceptance, his love and his friendship, all you have to do is 'search for him, with all your heart and soul, and you will find him.'
So why not take it deeper and search out God?
