How precious to me are your thoughts, Oh God! How vast the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. (Psalm 139:17-18).
Can you imagine what goes on in the mind of God?
No, I don’t suppose you can. Me neither.
It’s like the worm I dig up in the yard knowing my thoughts.
No…it’s more like the microbial parasite living in the worm that I dig up in the yard knowing my thoughts.
No…it’s more like the subatomic particles that make up the microbial parasite living in the worm that I dig up in the yard knowing my thoughts.
Which probably doesn’t happen.
And yet, God wants us to know at least a portion of his thoughts. That’s why he gave us his Word. You can fall asleep with his thoughts in your mind and awake with his thoughts in your heart. You can move through this day meditating on his Word, and making his thoughts your thoughts.
Because he wants you to know him.
Because you are his Beloved.
Which is just one of the many reasons that it is better to be you than a worm.
Happy Thursday, Beloved.
