Text: Psalms 139-141
Psalm 139 is a powerful Word telling us of God’s intimate involvement in our personal lives. Consider these words (139:17-18):
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!How vast is the sum of them!If I would count them, they are more than the sand.I awake, and I am still with you.
I know God is really big, but so is the universe. I know He cares about me, but there are seven billion others here on earth. So, it would make sense that He only thinks of me occasionally…. maybe only a couple times in my lifetime. But these words tell us that He thinks a whole lot and often about each of us. In fact, He thinks innumerable thoughts! Imagine what His thoughts are concerning you right now. Right now? Uh oh… It may seem unsettling, but this is the God who loves us, who died for us, who gives us grace upon grace (John 1:16). What a blessing to know He thinks of you and of me often!
in Him, Mike
