You are not forgotten!!

Napoleon's genius had been attributed to many things, but, above all, he was a superb natural leader of men. Like any wise leader he was aware that his own success would have been nothing had his men not been willing, even eager, to follow him. Obviously he could not know and personally inspire every man in his vast army, therefore he devised a simple technique for circumventing this difficulty. Before visiting a regiment he would call the colonel aside and ask for the name of a soldier who had served well in previous campaigns,
but who had not been given the credit he deserved. The colonel would indicate such a man. Napoleon would then learn everything about him, where he was born, the names of his family, his exploits in battle, etc. Later, upon passing this man while reviewing the troops, and at a signal from the colonel, Napoleon would stop, single out the man, greet him warmly, ask about his family, compliment him on his bravery and loyalty, reminisce about old campaigns, then pin a medal on the grateful soldier. The gesture worked. After the review, the other soldiers would remark, "You see, he knows us--he remembers. He knows our families. He knows we have served." 

But our Lord and Savior is not like Napoleon!!  He knows us before we were formed in our mother's womb. He knows each one of us by our name. He has engraved us in His palm. He always looks out for us
no matter what!! He never sleeps nor slumbers!!

We are all soldiers in God's army and we are all well provided and looked after. He knows us and our all without anybody needing to tell him. Won't you turn to Him this day?

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the
    hang of it!
