God Is Thinking ~ But Are We?

How much do you think God thinks about you? In Matthew 10:30 it says But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Hebrews 4:12 says He is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Both of these verses certainly indicate that God thinks about us. Psalm 40:5 talks about God’s thoughts and if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. Imagine that. God thinks more about you and me each and every day than we can even number. Psalm 139:17 reiterates the same truth about how often He thinks of His children ~ O God! How great is the sum of them. That warms my heart that my God feels that much love toward me.

And so the big question is "How much do we think of Him each day?" Do we give Him a second thought as we go throughout our regular routine? When we walk past His Word do we pick it up and spend some time with Him? Do we go to Him in prayer praising and worshiping Him? How much do you think of Christ these days? Can we say what King David said in Psalm 42:1~

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

For so much of my life I would have had to answer weakly and feebly to those questions above. But I finally got it - I finally realized what I was missing by not reading and praying on a regular basis. May our souls pant after God every day we remain on this earth.

4 Thoughts On The Matter:

Amen....we need Him, for without him where would we be? I had one of those days, this was a blessing.

God is so good :)

What a beautiful, encouraging post. I love Psalm 42:1 - that's the verse I've claimed for my granddughter Summer Brook.

Thank you for sharing this. I'll be meditating on these thoughts this evening.

You are SO right! I am guilty of ignoring God so much of the time! I know I am missing out on so many blessings. Thanks for pointing this out to me Cathryn!

God bless you!

I get so frustrated with myself at times when I stop and realize I have put other things ahead of time with my Lord. Thank you for the gentle reminder!
