God is Thinking about Me!

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?

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

  1. Hi, Hope!
    You’re so right that the Lord God is constantly communicating his loving thoughts, but they get tuned out by the distractions of the world. Even David detoured down the wrong road a few times when he listened to his own passions instead of the Lord’s voice.

    But yes, God is love! He guided David back to close relationship with him every time David strayed off course. He wants to do the same for us. EVERY time!

    I shared a recent wrong-road experience as the first post on my new website, http://www.LindaBonneyOlin.com. I invite you and your other readers to stop in and be encouraged by it. 🙂
    Blessings,
    Linda

  2. I am always blessed when I awake and in my spirit I say these words: ” I awake and you are with me” He hears us and we need to let ourselves hear Him in the many ways he speaks without a voice. Thank you for the inspired writing Hope. Here are my thoughts from my book of love, with accompanying scriptural footnotes. Blessings of love to you all.

    “I hear You”

    I hear You in the falling rain
    I hear You in the wind 1
    You are heard in everything 2
    I know I’ll hear You again 3

    In the wind – in the rain
    In my joy – in my pain
    Let Your mercy fall like rain 4
    Shower down Your love again

    So I hear You

    1. Job 28:25
    2. Isaiah 55:12, Romans 8:23
    3. Numbers 12:6
    4. Hosea 6:3
