Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the man, “Young man, your sins are forgiven.”
Luke 5:20 (NLT)
I always loved this verse. It is so easy to think that we are insignificant, that God cares so much for others but not me; that I don’t really matter. What a lie! In this passage there were four men who were bringing a paralyzed man to Jesus. They heard Jesus could heal but they couldn’t get through the crowd into the house where Jesus was. Instead of giving up, they tore the roof apart and lowered the man right into the room where Jesus was. Now Jesus could have focused on the paralyzed man. After all he was the one who needed help. But instead Jesus noticed the four men and the faith and persistence they had. He noticed them. We know that Jesus knows all about us. We know that He is omnipresent. But have you really considered the fact that He notices you? God stops and focuses His attention on you! You are the object of His gaze. Let that sink in. He notices you and He loves what He sees.
Dear Father, thank You for Your love for me. Thank You paying attention to me. Help me believe that You know me and are aware of who I am. Help me to appreciate that kind of personal love You have for me. Thank You Lord for noticing me.
