World Population Reaches 7 Billion

Rumor has it that the global population has now reached 7 BILLION!  This means that there are over 7 billion individuals wandering this planet we call Earth; each one with unique stories, histories, dreams, challenges, hurts, and joys.

Aotearoa (New Zealand), with it's meager population of 4 million, only makes up .0057 percent of the world's inhabitants.

It is quite mind-blowing that our Creator God actually knows us each by name.  He doesn't just refer to us by the name that others call us, but knows our true selves.  Perhaps even more remarkable than the fact that God full understands the desires and needs of over 7 billion humans, is the fact that nothing in us scares anything in him. 
Below are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs, "You Fail Us Not" by 1,000 Generations.  Be blessed!

Failure doesn’t phase You, worry doesn’t win,
Loss doesn’t leave You afraid to start again,
Our sin doesn’t shock You,
Our shame doesn’t shame You at all

Mistakes do not move You, terror doesn’t tame,
Death doesn’t doom You to life in the grave,
Our suffering doesn’t scare You,
Our secrets won’t surprise You at all

There is nothing above You,
There is nothing beyond You,
There is nothing that You can’t do…
There is no one beside You,
There is no one that’s like You,
There is nothing that You can’t do…
Whatever will come, we’ll rise above,
You fail us not, You fail us not,
No matter the war, our hope is secure,
You fail us not, You fail us not,
You fail us not…

Hatred doesn’t hide You, evil doesn’t ail,
Despair can’t disguise You and tell You that You’ve failed,
Our doubt doesn’t daunt You,
Our darkness won’t defeat You at all

You’re bigger than the battle,
You are bigger than the battle
You are bigger than the battle has ever been
