Or maybe the question should be: Does God think of the Bloggernacle? I’m reminded of that great story in told in general conference a few years ago about a priesthood leader that was in need and had the name of a certain man come into his head as the right person to ask for help. This saint made the requested sacrifice and said it was worth it all “just to know the God in heaven knows my name.” This post is to assure you, good readers, that God knows your names.
I know that God knows you because he specifically directed me to seek help from you in my time of great need. My faith in a miracle was slowly growing throughout that long night of darkness last week but I needed more faith. I got a very clear and strong impression that I needed to make the 30 minute drive back home that midnight to humbly beg for that assistance here. After I did so I immediately returned to the ICU but I felt somehow better.
Why did it help? Why would he send me to you? I’m convinced it is because you are among the very elect. You are among the spiritual superstars of the planet. You are the spiritual super heroes. You are among the angels God sent me to when I needed help moving a mountain. You are part of the tiny percentage of people on this planet that are teetering on the brink of Celestial glory… of exaltation. You have great power. And my family benefited from your great power. The mountain moved.
What does God think of the Bloggernacle? He loves it dearly because the Bloggernacle is made up of the most precious things in the universe – The souls of men and women.
Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God
(D&C 18: 10)
For behold, this is my work and my glory-to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. (Moses 1:39)
God is clearly not in the business of saving the mortal lives of three year old boys. Many others have been allowed to pass through the veil without his intervention. But God is in the business of bringing to pass eternal life. The first step in the process of attaining eternal life is developing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. If he is going to move a mountain he just might want to get as many of his superstars to chip in as possible… because that service… that pulling out the spiritual shovel and moving the mountain one shovel full or one prayer at a time helps you to be like Him – saviors to poor, needy, helpless souls like I was that night. And the whole process draws us all closer to Him. Closer to that exaltation he desperately wants for us all.
Maybe that’s part of the reason why God insisted I implore you for help. So you could join with him in being our saviors and we could increase our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ together. Or maybe it was just because my family needed more strong shovelers to get that mountain moved and he knew you were some of the best shovelers on the planet.
In any case, be assured that God knows who you are. God is aware of the Bloggernacle.
