Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Ephesians 1:4 MSG
Our creative God, our longing God wanted someone to love. And He saw ahead that we would need healing and cleansing to be holy once more. Fully knowing what that would mean to His Son He longed for us anyway.
He wants animals cared for. That’s why He gave us them. He wants land He created watched over. That’s why we dwell on it.
But more than these He’s going to watch out for us. He’s going to heal us, He’s going to wash us, He’s going to talk with us. If we listen, if we quiet our minds and open our hearts we can feel His love focused within our souls. He created a quiet place within us where no evil can quell His love, a place no evil can touch. It’s a place for sweet conversation and a touch of grace for us.
