Who Am i?

Just a little something i'm musing over as i find it hard to wrap my head around this:

The God who was before time and who is and who will forever be, sees me. Billions of humans, and He notes me. Noted me long long long ago. Who am i that "before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name" (Isaiah 49:1)?

He wants to hear my voice in prayer and praise. Who am i that the Lord would desire my frog in the throat when for years He's been serenaded when "the morning stars sang in chorus and all the angels shouted praise?" (Job 38:7)

With the same voice that He "counts the stars and calls them all by name," He calls me "by a new name" (Psalm 147:4; Isaiah 62:2).

i know my heart, and at times i want to escape it. So who am i that, though He could be anywhere in the world, God would make His home with me (John 14:23)? And there, i have "rest in His presence" (1 John 3:19).

Read Genesis, Job, the Gospels, Revelation. Then tell me if you can wrap your head around who the Lord is. i bet you'll wonder and marvel too, who am i that He would see me, want me, call me and abide with me?

But He does. And I'm pretty sure it's less about who i am, and all about who HE is: "Faithful and True" (Revelation 19:11).
