She stated to me that most days she feels invisible. It broke my heart as I think most of us have felt this way at some time or another. It is not a pleasant feeling.
Invisible is to be in a room filled with people, not know who to talk with and realize no one will be approaching you either. It’s as if no one notices you or even knows you are there.
The enemy would be quick to move in on those thoughts. He knows how to capitalize on a lie …
- “Why should anyone notice you?”
- “There’s nothing interesting about you.”
- “If you were funnier, a better conversationalist or knew how to make small talk, maybe then they’d notice you.”
These lies will explode in our minds faster than an overblown balloon can pop. To prevent this, one must reign the lies in with the truth of God.
And that truth is that He notices you. You are not invisible to Him. Never have been. Never will be.
“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Psalm 139:16, NLT)
He saw you before even a day of your life had come to be. Every single moment which would happen was already on His radar. The entire span of your life from beginning to end was already seen and known by God. You were never hidden from His sight.
“The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3, NLT)
There is not a single place any of us can go where His eye is not watching.
“But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.”
“And the very hairs on your head are numbered.” (Matthew 10: 29, 30, NLT)
Sparrows were cheap and common in those days. Yet our God knew fully if one would fall to the ground. He kept watch on them. And He keeps count of the hairs on your head. Not one can fall to the bathroom floor without His knowing.
Eeyore believed that no one ever noticed him. He became accustomed to those thoughts and never was able to think otherwise. All the while, the truth was he had Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Rabbit who wanted and enjoyed his company. He was noticed. He just didn’t believe he was visible.
May you know in the depths of your heart that you are noticed.
