How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! (Psalm 139:17)
Aren’t you thankful that David wrote down his thoughts, poems, songs, and books about God? David’s faith was not complex. It was actually quite simple. David believed God was bigger than fear. A bear, a lion, and a giant named Goliath could not convince him otherwise. Furthermore, David believed God loved him, knew him, and wanted to spend time with him.
And so David writes, “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee (Psalm 139:16,17).”
This morning as I spent time with our Lord he let me know that some mature Christians want to draw near to Him but they don’t know how. Maybe you were close to God at one time, but find it difficult to regain that intimacy with Him. I encourage you to jot down today’s date at the top of your blank paper and write, draw, and pen a few thoughts.
Right now all around you there are radio waves that are speaking or singing a song. And right now all around you God’s thoughts are coming toward you—maybe His song, too. David said God’s thoughts toward us are as many as the grains of sand! Wow! So reach up and “tune in” to a God thought. Ask Him what He’s thinking about right now. Tune out the “static noise” of distractions, deceptions, and detours and pick up on the voice of God. Hint: God is love.
Jump Start Prayer: Lord God, I believe in invisible radio waves and I believe in the invisible God. Will you speak to me right now? What is on your heart?
