“How precious are your thoughts to me, oh, God! How vast the sum of them. If I could count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awaken, I am still with You!” ~ Psalm 139:17-18
Life has not always been a “Bed of Roses” or a highway paved with gold for me and you. Often times, we spend more time trying to climb out or work around unseen holes; unexpected detours and getting back on course after taking wrong turns.
God, however, observes and stays involved with each and every mile we travel. This should bring we, His beloved children, great comfort and peace.
Personally, I cannot even begin to comprehend the number of nights I wept before the Lord – begging Him to remove the pain I was going thru at the time.
(Yes. There were many times in my life when I “felt” as though my words and tears were hitting an invisible ceiling; ignored by a God preoccupied with more important issues than the things I was burdened with.)
But then, with the new morning sun’s rising – my soul would sense the comfort and strength of my God who reminds me through the promises given in His Word and affirmed by His Spirit, the affirmations offered such as this verse posted!
Dearest friend, if you are “feeling” like God doesn’t hear you or that He doesn’t care about what is going on in your life right now – BECOME STILL, LISTEN AND KNOW THIS:
God loves you. He has never left you, orphaned you or abandoned you to the enemies of your soul. He cares for you, treasures you and HEARS YOUR SWEET PRAYERS TO HIM. Trust Him and His promises to you. He is not like us. He doesn’t lie or promise things that He cannot keep. You may weep this evening but, KNOW that HIS MERCIES are renewed each and every morning.
We belong to Jesus. And, that alone, is enough to give us a real hope beyond this life. He is all we need friend.
