September 12 – Love Before Foundations

John 17:20-26

Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. (John 17:24 ESV)

Before you were born God loved you. Before the difficulty you are facing cropped up in your life. Before you had your current job and present relationships.

Before the world was, God knew your name. He knew your need. He cared for you deeply.

There is something to be said for the incredible sovereignty of God. His power and plan stretches across history in either direction. Before the furthest flicker of ancient beginnings God already existed. After the last anything on this Earth, God will exist. He has been there, seen those moments, and lived them—and He has loved you throughout all of them.
