How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

Psalm 139:17

God’s thoughts.

Comprehending the Lord’s “thoughts” remains impossible for the human mind.  We can’t possibly begin to understand the magnificent and numerous mind of the Creator.  As created beings, we naturally desire to know God’s thoughts, but ultimately, we must accept we can’t.  Realizing God thinks about us gives us something to treasure.

The Lord who created the Earth, parted the seas, and pierced the darkness with His light thinks about you.  Not only does God think about you, but He has long before you entered the world.  How amazing that the all-knowing, all-powerful God thinks about each one of us constantly, adoring you with every thought He has about you.

No one has ever loved me like my husband does.  Sometimes, Ron overwhelms me with his affection.  I catch him looking at me with a dreamy smile on his face.

“What are you smiling at?” I ask.

“You, I just love you,” he’ll respond.

Ron surprises me at these times.  He finds whatever I’m doing endearing, which shows on his face.  While dating, Ron would tell me how much he thought about me.  “I knew the minute I met you, you were trouble,” he says about our first meeting.  When he came to pick me up for our first date, I will never forget Ron walking towards me, arms outstretched, a smile on his face, and affection in his eyes.  Allowing him to fold me into his arms began a healing journey as I learned how to accept and receive love.

As I began to understand love in a new way, my relationship with God deepened as I gained a different perspective on love.  Ron helped me understand unconditional love.  Raised in a loving family, I knew love.  Where family must love you, Ron chose to love me and continues to cherish me daily.

God chose to love us.  Each day, the Lord loves us more and more.  Nothing we do stops our Creator from loving us.  Spend time thinking about the person who loves you most on this earth.  Try to imagine how much more God loves you than them.  Ponder how much the Lord thinks about you.  Every second, minute, and hour, God’s thinking about you.  Not a moment goes by without the Lord having you on His mind.

David’s thinking about how much God thinks about him.  Knowing the Lord dotes on him makes the warrior feel precious.  Treasuring God’s thoughts towards him gives David value and affirms his purpose on Earth.  The grown shepherd boy knows that the Creator designed him for a purpose, thinks about him constantly, and loves him unconditionally.

Just like David, God created us for a purpose that only we can fulfill.  Basking in the Creator’s love will help us persevere in the storms, knowing God hasn’t forgotten us.  The Lord never stops thinking about you and me, in that we can trust.


On God’s mind.

I know how much I think about the people I love.  My family and friends constantly occupy my thoughts and prayers when facing hardships.  God thinks about me more than I ever think about someone else.  Trying to understand this faith fact overwhelms me.  I can’t imagine the Lord spending that much time thinking about me, yet He does. 

Feelings of unworthiness make me doubt.  But faith makes me believe.  If God’s always with me, He’s always thinking about me. Considering what we can’t see defines faith.  Trusting God constantly has me on His mind helps me find my value and discover my purpose.  And the Lord promises to do the same for you.

Lord, forgive us for not believing You think about us.  As we begin to process and accept that You always have us on Your mind, help us believe it in our core.  Let us find our value in You, our worthiness, and our purpose in You.  Guide and direct us on our journeys, help us discover our purpose, honoring You in all things.  IJNIP. Amen
