"For you are a people holy to the Lord your God.  The Lord your God had chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His People, His treasured possession.  The Lord did not set His affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples."  Deut. 7:6,7

Today you may be thinking how insignificant you are in this crazy world.  You may be feeling like nobody, and so small that God could never find you among the anthills of humans that surround us.  With the noise, the lights, the rush, the constant roar of traffic, the media blast, the music, the constant activity of the peoples, and their chasing after worldly things, where do we fit in?  Where does the man or woman of God fit in?

God knows His own.  He hears and sees us without distraction.  He is focused on His few, those who follow Jesus Christ in a depraved and maddened world.  He has never lost us, though we may lose Him, and not see Him in the glare of modern life.

If you love Christ today, you are God's treasured possession.  He has chosen you, out of all the peoples of the earth that rush around you like a massive daily tsunami.  You may feel like a piece of driftwood on the tide, but there is One who controls the tide, and He is looking after you.

We are the few, the humble, the disciples of Christ.  We may be ignored and belittled and forgotten by the world, but the One and Only of the Father, Christ Jesus Himself, will keep every one of us who trusts in Him until the final day.  He will finish what He started.

Be strong in your faith today.  Love and trust Christ alone, and live in His strength.
