Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, My people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself. (Jeremiah 31:3 NLT)
Jeremiah 31:3 is one of my favorite verses. God will always love us. He loved us before we were created. He will love us for eternity. We were created out of love. I always like to say that if God had a refrigerator, our picture would be on it.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:29 that God knows when a sparrow falls to the ground. You can go to just about every continent and find the common English sparrow. No matter where you live, you can relate to that little bird’s falling to the ground and know that God is aware of it. Jesus says we that we are more valuable than a little sparrow. We are special to Him.
