It's easy to feel like God doesn't really pay attention to what is going on in our lives. As if God is so bombarded by information that He doesn't see us as individuals.
In the gospel of Luke it tells how God sent the angel Gabriel to Zacharias (an older man who's wife was unable to have children) and then to Mary (the betrothed virgin chosen to be Jesus' mother).
Both Zacharias and Mary were both just typical people, but God knew every specific about their lives. He chose each of them and sent Gabriel to them specifically.
“Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent
by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man
whose name was Joseph, of the house of David.
The virgin's name was Mary.”
How amazing is that? That God sees us as more than just people – He sees our stories also. We aren't lost in the sea of faces, we are individuals to God.
