How precious to me are Your thoughts, God. How vast is the sum of them! ~Psalm 139:17
A penny for your thoughts?
Do you ever wonder what God is thinking about? Do you imagine He is probably too busy to really give His full attention to your request or the things that are taking place in your life?
The truth is that nothing in this world is more important to God then we are! God will never put you on hold to take another call, He won’t be checking His phone when you spend time together, and you don’t have to wait till the baseball game is over to bring your requests to Him.
In fact, He knows us better then we know ourselves! One of my favorite verses in all of the Bible goes into great detail concerning God’s exact thoughts about us.
“You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Coffee is always a great pick me up at the end of a long week but there is nothing quite as refreshing as knowing my God has me in His thoughts today and always! ♡♡♡
Let’s finish the week strong; keeping Psalm 139 in mind. God’s thoughts toward us are amazing!
