Grace For The Journey
The Bible says in Psalm 139:17-18, “How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.”
Have you ever considered how much you are thought of by our God and Creator? The psalmist says the thoughts God has for us are so vast that if one were to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand on the sea shore – in other words . . .
Our heavenly Father has more thoughts for us than we can ever count!.
Because of the finiteness and full plates of our family and friends, it is a big probability that you are not thought of even every moment. But the Bible tells us that we are never off the mind of great and gracious God!
Let this truth comfort you today . . .
You are always on the mind of your Master . . .
And, You are always on His heart!
The Lord Jesus Christ thinks of you continually, and each one of those thoughts is designed for your ultimate good. When the sky is blue and the clouds are fleecy, Jesus is thinking of you. When dark clouds fill the sky and the storm winds begin to blow, Jesus is thinking of you.
Never is there a set of circumstances or a season in life
When you are not continually thought of by your God.
God is thinking of you when you are striding along the straight and narrow, and He is thinking of you when you are wandering toward the wilderness. You are continually thought of in your joy and in your sorrow . . . in your pain and in your pleasure . . . in your triumph and in your tragedy . . . in your going out and in your coming in. Never are you NOT on the mind of God!
How does that make you feel right now, right in the situation this blog finds you?
Never let the thought of the unbeliever invade your mind – that God is impersonal and uninvolved in your life. The Bible tells us that we were made for God; that He does not want to leave us in our sin and separation; that He did what we could not do and bought us with His precious blood. He so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son so that we might have eternal life!
To know you are on the mind of someone who is important to all of us. Someone whose friendship we value and trust, is a comfort and a source of great encouragement. How much more encouraging is it to know that the King of kings and Lord of lords is continually thinking of you? If even a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart from the knowledge and will of God (Matthew 10:29-29), there is no part of your life that God is not continually thinking about. If the number of hairs on your head is known by your God, there is nothing going on in your life right now that He does not know and is not in complete control of (Matthew 10:30-31).
To know that you are continually thought of is a source of both comfort and conviction. It is an unspeakable comfort to know the Creator of the universe has set His mind upon you; we should also feel a profound sense of conviction to live each day to its fullest for the glory of the One who has given so much to us and thinks so much of us.
