Have you ever thought about what it would be like peeking into the mind of God? Many of us bask in the knowledge of God’s presence with us. We find comfort in words like, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Or “Surely I am with you always.” Our hearts ponder and cling to his always-abiding presence.
The psalmist in psalm 139 gives us a peek into God’s mind. Not only do we think about God, but He thinks about us! David seems almost overwhelmed by the concept of God’s unwavering attention to His children. He describes God’s thoughts as not merely cerebral; they are precious, great, and heavy.
David says God’s thoughts about us are not only rare and beautiful but vast in number. It is as though God’s mind, contemplating us, overflows with thought after thought after thought toward His precious children.
Today as we peek into God’s mind and see His unconditional love and divine acceptance of sinners like us should draw us to our knees in wonder and adoration. We do not deserve such loving attention. It is an irresistible gift of a gracious God.
“How precious are your thoughts concerning me, O God! How vast is the sum of them.” Psalm 139:17
Yahweh, I am drawn to you in a new way as I ponder your thoughts about me. Father, how you must long for my companionship just as you wanted to walk with your first children in the garden. God, I long to have your mind of unconditional love. Thank you, oh thank you, for your care and acceptance of a sinner like me in Jesus’s name Amen.
