“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them.”

Psalm 139:17

To know you have a friend who cares can be encouraging to you, to have many people who are remembering you can really lift your spirits. But, knowing that we are remembered by God is of greater comfort than any human being can give. Remember God has a plan for your life. He has thoughts about you. “How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them.”

God’s  thoughts toward you are loving thoughts. He is our Heavenly Father, He knows how  to give good gifts unto His children. Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to bring about an expected end.” It was because of His loving thoughts that He sent His Son to die for our sins, John 3:16.

His thoughts toward you are constant thoughts. Where ever you find yourself today, in what- ever situation or circumstance, you are always on His mind. You are a unique individual who has been created in God’s likeness. You are more than just a part of a multitude or crowd. His thoughts about you are more in number than the grains of sand found in all the deserts, beaches or oceans of the world.

Our Heavenly Father has a disposition and an ability to help His children, simply put God has thoughts directed toward us with the sole purpose of helping and supplying our every need. So, if you are discouraged and you think no one cares, let me remind you that you are highly favoured and God is thinking about you.

The psalmist had a marvelous sense of God’s personal care when he wrote: “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You” (Psalm 139:17-18).

We don’t know David’s circumstances when he wrote this psalm. He may have endured a night of fitful dozing, or he may have enjoyed a sound, peaceful sleep. Regardless, we know that David was overwhelmed by the knowledge that God was thinking of him even while he slept, so many thoughts he couldn’t count them all.

The next time you feel alone, remember that God, who sent His Son to die for your sins, is thinking of you and saying, “I love you!”
