He Foreknew Me

Scriptures: (Romans 8:27-32) (v27) Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is because, He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. (v28) And we know that, all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (v29) For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. (v30) Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (v31) What then can we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (v32) He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

It is recorded in the Book of Genesis 1:1-26 that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Verse after verse we read where each time during creation GOD would just speak everything into existence by stating,  Then GOD said, (v3) “Let there be light”; (v6) Then GOD said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, Then GOD said, (v9) “ Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together in one place,  Then GOD said, (v11) “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, Then GOD said, (v14) “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; Then GOD said, (v20) “ Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens. Then GOD said, “(v24) “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth according to its kind, Then GOD said, (v26)  “Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth”.

Saints of the Living GOD lets pause over this one true undeniable fact. God foreknew what He wanted when it came to creation. Before time and in time He foreknew what colors, He would speak into existence, for the sky, the sun, the clouds, the grass, the birds, the fish of the sea, the animals of the land, but most of all He foreknew you and I.   Our Omniscient God in Christ, He predestined us, In Christ He foreknew us, and in Christ He ordained us for His Eternal Glory.
Why did Christ come and die for us, because He was prepared, predestined, and committed to the will of His Father. He foreknew our failures, our sins, our helplessness, our struggles, our betrayals, our unbelief and yet He loved us enough to die for us. Through faith we can and shall become more and more like Him as we yield to His Sovereign will for our individual lives.

When He was on the Cross, I was on His mind
A look of love was on his face, The thorns upon on his head
The blood was on that scarlet robe, Stained it crimson red
Though his eyes were on the crowd that day, He looked ahead in time
And when He was on the cross, You and I were on his mind
He knew me, yet He loved me
He whose glory makes the heavens shine,
 I'm not worthy of such mercy, But when He was on the cross, I was on his mind

Prayer: My Abba Father, my King of Glory Jesus, I bow before Your Holy presence. I am speechless but You know why. I am confessing however, You know why.  I love You and that You know.
