“…it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matthew 18: 14)
Your Father-Mother has no favorites. His Love is boundless and every idea that He conceived is one that He thoroughly and enduringly loves. Each one of us is safe in the certainty of God’s presence and His awareness of who we are, where we are, and why we are essential to His glorious expression.
God’s will is not destructive or neglectful. You can trust Him as a Shepherd that is able to care for you and for all the others as well. You can be so grateful that you are a sheep and that you needn’t worry your sweet little head over your own well-being or that of any of the other sheep in God’s infinite pasture. Your divine Shepherd knows His own and He loves them, keeps them, carries them, guides them, cleanses them, always brings them home.
Our Father’s heavenly consciousness, that presence that is peaceful reality, embraces each one of us and we each hear and naturally respond to His loving voice. He knows what every one of his little ones most need to find their way to safety and joy, and He can do this tending so much better, wiser, more effectively than we can.
No one is out of God’s care. Each is tenderly watched and expressively loved.
