That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard,  And no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)

 In the beginning, before the earth even existed there was only God, existing in three persons. At some point before time He chose to create the universe. In the midst of that vast amount of space He placed a tiny speck of rock and filled it with water and land and trees and animals. And He looked at His creation and saw that it was very, very good.

There was something missing though. The creator God wanted to love and be loved so He created the most special creature one could imagine. A creature that was made in His very own image! Next He created a mate for that ‘man’ as he called Him. Creator God visited the couple often. They walked together. Talked together. Hugged each other. They loved.

One day tragedy struck the garden and sin destroyed that perfect relationship. Much as He loved the man and woman (whom He called Adam and Eve) the relationship was horribly broken and He had to send them from the paradise He’d created with them in mind.

From that point forward Creator God began the work of restoring the relationship He missed. He yearned to walk again with man. To hold them. To laugh with them. To share life with Adam and Eve and their children. Creator God loved the man and woman so much that He became one of them to show them how to love and how to fix the relationship He so much longed for.

He is still working today to mend that relationship. When you love someone dearly you want to give them anything and everything they need to make them happy and healthy. On the human plain, time, money and our human frailty keeps us from giving those we love all we want to give them. Not so with Creator God. He yearns to give you all the blessings you can possibly handle….and MORE!

Because of Jesus we have the right and privilege to come into His very presence and cry, talk, even vent our frustrations. He loves us. He loves us more than anything.

PRAYER; Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me like you do. I am so unworthy of all you have given me. Empower me through your Spirit to sense your love and compassion. Give me the courage to be able to ask you for my needs. I love you very much. Amen.
