Psalm 139:1-24 This psalm declares clearly how much God is thinking about us. We have an expression in the Christian community we use when we are concerned about someone. We say, "You have really been on my heart." We are on God's heart every day of our lives. Listen quietly and You can hear Him say, "Today, My child, you are on My heart, and I am praying for you." This psalm says, "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" (vv. 17-18).
Not only is God thinking about you today, His thoughts were absorbed with you even before you were born. This psalm tells us that God was watching us when we were formed in our mother's womb, and He wrote down the members of our body.
If you feel today, that God has somehow abandoned you or forgotten that you exist, read this psalm. After you read it, you can then praise and give thanks to the Lord because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. He loves you, and you are in His thoughts today. Jesus is making effective intercession for you right now at this very moment.
Thank You, Lord, for thinking about me today. I know in Your thoughts is a plan for me today. Father, let what is in Your mind and heart for me today be accomplished according to Your will. I submit myself to Your way, which is much higher than my own way. Help me by Your Holy Spirit to tap into what Jesus is praying for me today and to what You have planned for me each minute of this day.
