“Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered”. ~ Psalm 40:5, KJV.
Here we see the undeniable intimacy that God has with us, His most prized creation of all. His very works are so many … so awe inspiring … that if you take a moment to look around at His handiwork, instant and continual praise cannot be contained from our lips. His glory abounds through all His works.
Do you know that the thoughts that the Lord has of you are so vast that they outnumber the stars in the universe and all the grains of sand upon the entire earth? In reference to this, the Psalmist writes, “How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand …” ~ Psalm 139:17-18, KJV.
God’s thoughts concerning you are so immense that they cannot be recounted to Him in order. There is no earthly numerical value so immeasurable as to even have a mathematical name for it – it exceeds all human knowledge! His thoughts of you are from eternity! They are multiplied times infinity. No one can absorb, digest, perceive, or behold them.
What innumerable mercies this reveals that He has for us. The thoughts of His mercies regarding us are ongoing and over and over with each new day. His mighty Providence and redemption are declared through these thoughts. You are ever upon His mind, therefore in His heart. What beauty to grasp and comprehend even but a small fraction of the love He has for His own!
