Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Proverbs 6:7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Proverbs 6:8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
Does God See Me?
My family and I had decided to pack a picnic lunch and head off down to the creek one afternoon. It's the only place in the world we can all get away from society and just be ourselves. The kids were so excited and they couldn't wait to get down there. When we had finally arrived they took off with excitement, jumping around like little bucking bulls. I got out the vehicle and walked toward the water. I sure wasn't bucking like no bull and neither was my husband. lol Your bones just don't want to run when you get older for some reason. Or at least ours don't. haha
As I stood there looking at my family, tears began to fill my eyes. I began to talk to God and tell him thank you for the moment to see all three of my kids laughing and playing in the water. I saw my husband sitting on a rock gazing and I just had to smile. In my silence I took notice of their presence and what a good time they were all having. I thought I need to take a picture of everybody so on my way back up to the car to get my camera I noticed a large ant hill. I stooped down and looked closer. It was the only ant hill by the creek where we were at. I thought to myself, those little ants worked so hard to make this. I am sure there was other ant hills all around but I didn't see them. I only seen this one because these little ants were the only ones that decided to build right by the creek of where we were at. If they had built anywhere else I would not have seen them. I took notice of how large the anthill was. I took notice that they built it out of sand. I took notice that they decided to build it close along the running creek. I also noticed that I didn't see the ants, and I thought they might be off working doing something. I was taking notice of a lot of things.
Have you ever wondered, "Does God Even See Me?" Your family might be that ant hill that was planted right by the waters. Your family is the ones that are staying busy working constantly for God's kingdom. You know what? You might be the very family that God stops to look at. He is up close and personal. He is taking notice of your family. He is taking notice of you. You might feel like a tiny ant in this big old world and you wonder if God sees you or hears your prayers.
God does see you. He sees you more than you realize. He is so close to you because you have chosen to build your house close to where he resides that he is watching you very close. He is taking notice of how hard you have worked and how much you really love him. He is proud of your efforts. He is touched by your hearts desires and by how much you love him. You are in his territory and he sees you. God has many blessings for his children. God told us in scripture to take notice of the little ants. They are so small but God say's they are very wise. They do what they are suppose to do all the time without God having to tell them what to do. They are hard workers. They build homes and provide food and plan ahead. We do not need to worry about if God is seeing us. If you love him and are busying working for him because you love him then do not think for one second that God does not see you or hear your prayers..
Your prayers may be ringing in his ears closer than you even realize.....
