Oh, boy, there are SO MANY people on this Earth! Billions and Billions and Billions. This site said there were 7,074,686,150 when I looked. Sometimes it feels like half of them are in front of me slowing me down from where I am trying to go. One big traffic jam.
But God is absolutely clear. He knows each and every one of us. He loves each one of us. He wants a real live relationship with each one of us, whether we are number 99 or 99,999,999 or 7,074,686,150. God doesn’t want anyone left behind or left out. Not if you are one of the “good guys”. Not even if you are one of the “bad guys”. He has an individual plan for each of us. How does He possibly do that? Why does he do that? Because He is God and He is Great and He is Good!
“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost. Mathew 18: 12-14.
