God is interested in YOU

I have a loved one who is not very interested in God at this time in his life. Today I was reminded that no matter how uninterested in God we might be, God is VERY INTERESTED IN US! In fact, there is not a single moment in time that God is not extremely interested in us. Does that give you chill bumps just thinking about it? Or perhaps you're doubting my statement is true. Perhaps you're in the midst of a LifeTremor and it feels as if God has abandoned you to your circumstances. I've felt like that before.

How do I know God is very interested in you?
Through Experience:
I received an email from a dear friend. She told me about being awakened in the middle of the night to pray. Being sensitive to the Spirit of God, she felt the need to pray for several people, including MY loved one. Did you understand the significance of what I just wrote? God -- the God who created the universe -- the Only True God -- nudged her to pray for my loved one -- the one who is uninterested in God. I love knowing that no matter how indifferent to God we might be, God always cares about us. God cannot be indifferent. God cannot be uninterested. That would go against His very nature.

Through His Word:
God's Word tells us that He loves His people with an "everlasting love." (Jer 31:3)
But that's the Old Testament.

What does the New Testament say?
Rom 3:11 says there is "no one who seeks God"
1 John 4:19 says "We love because he first loved us."

Basically God's Word is saying even when you are totally uninterested in God, He loves you. There can be no mistake -- God is most interested in YOU.

Such knowledge is astounding and comforting.
Such knowledge helps me to persevere in prayer for my loved one.

What about YOU?
Are you interested in God?

I am certain of this: He's interested in YOU.
