The unthinkable actually happened. We were visiting a chateau in the Loire Valley with friends and I crossed paths with my twin. OK, so she was not my twin but we were wearing the same dress. Normally, one does not strike up a conversation with a complete stranger in French society, but in this case an exception was made! We had a good laugh and teased each other about our good taste and our different accessories.
More than once, I have almost stopped someone on the street, thinking they were someone else. Looking similar is big business for the celebrity look-alikes. But in fact, there are always differences between us, even among identical twins. Each one of us is unique.
Our verse for today comes from a psalm of David that acknowledges God’s intimate knowledge of His creation. From the very beginning in our mother’s womb, He has formed us to be exactly who we are. Our particular combination of DNA is not by chance. Each one of us can say we are unique, unlike anyone else.
The same can be said of our relationship with God. Although all believers have the same access to God through His Son, Jesus, each of us relate to Him differently. Our personalities, life experiences, our emotions and our understanding of God’s Word all play a part in this special and unique relationship. There are no cookie-cutter ways to love and commune with Him. His relationship with me is unique to me. His relationship with you is unique to you.
He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Thank you Jesus, for being my King and my Lord.
