“My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body” (Psalm 139:15-16, NIV)
Being ‘seen’ by people usually requires some effort. Fashionable clothes, a smooth haircut and a cheerful smile will help in everyday encounters. But if you really want to be ‘seen’ by the general public or influential people, you will have to make a special effort. Perhaps you can attract attention at work by performing well. Or you may become famous by participating in a talent show. But if you just live your normal life, you remain largely out of the picture. You may get the impression that most people don’t pay attention to you.
With the Lord God, it is very different. He sees every person individually. He sees you. And not only when you have accomplished something special, but even before you were born! While you were still in your mother’s womb, God already knew who you were. He even knew what your life would be like. And at this moment He still knows you — not just superficially, but deeply even to your innermost thoughts.
Do you care about being seen by other people? How do you feel about the idea that God sees you always and everywhere, inside and out?
