Your thoughts

‘How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!

How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand

When I awake, I am still with you

 Every day our heavenly father is with us and as I‘ve been reflecting on Psalm 139 recently I’ve been reminded of just how much he really wants to speak to us.

He always wants to speak to us.

He never stops speaking.

The question is;

Am I hearing, what is he saying?

All of creation sings of his name, the maker of heaven and earth. From the highest of mountain peaks to the lowest of valleys, our God reigns. Nothing escapes his attention, not even the smallest detail of our lives.

How can it be?

He is God!

He knows my every thought, before I think it.

My every word before I speak it.

How can it be?

He is God!

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me to fully comprehend or to even understand and yet here the Psalmist writes of his desire to know the very thoughts of God.

The vast sum of them.

So many thoughts that he can’t even count them.

How can it be?

He is God!

With so many questions racing around my head when I think about how vast our God really is – supreme, sovereign and majestic over all.  I realise how small I am in this world and yet how significant I am in his.

He is always thinking about me. 

How can it be?

He is God!

Yet his thoughts are not my thoughts;

nor are his ways my ways.

yet the depth of his love is;

so high that I can’t climb over it

so low that I can’t sneak under it and;

so wide that I can’t get around it

Then as I read the words of this Psalm once more and stop, to pause and reflect just for a moment I find myself asking a question;

“What is God really thinking?”
