Daily Promise – September 4 – He can’t stop thinking about us

Psalm 139:17-18
17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
how great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake, I am still with thee.

Promise #247: My thoughts toward you outnumber the sand on the seashore.

Have you ever tried to count the number of grains of sand there are on a seashore? While it might be technically possible to do, I think it is very close to the realm of impossible. There is simply too much sand to be able to even begin to count each grain.

King David in Psalm 139 makes a declaration that the thoughts of God toward him literally outnumber the grains of sand on the seashore. Basically I think what David was basically saying was that God is continually thinking of him! Non stop… all the time!

Now if we try to comprehend this in our human understanding, we will short circuit for sure because it does not seem possible that God would be constantly thinking of us. I am thankful that our God and Father is not limited to our own human limitations so He can do whatever He wants, however He wants to do it.

My prayer for each one of us today is that we would become more aware of the longing in our Papa’s heart for us. He is thinking about you RIGHT NOW! And right now, and right now again! Isn’t that amazing? The God of the universe cannot stop thinking about you and me! May this life-changing truth sink deep down into the depths of our heart and transform us more and more on the inside.
