Did you know that God thinks about us? Does this give peace or cause a twinge of fear? When we understand what the Bible says it will bring us peace and comfort.
Psalm 139:17-18 reveals the types of thoughts He thinks concerning us. It says, “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: when I awake, I am still with thee.”
According to this Scripture, the Lord has more than just a few good thoughts about us. In fact, we cannot count the total sum of them.
We live in such a negative world that people have a difficult time sharing a pleasant thought about another. But despite the negativeness of this world, God can’t stop thinking good thoughts about us.
His thoughts about us are more than good thoughts, they are precious thoughts. When something is precious it is valuable, priceless, beyond the limit of a price tag. When something is precious it is important, significant, and it matters. When something is precious it is treasured, very dear to the heart. When something is precious it is cherished, esteemed very highly. And we are the somethings that are precious and loved, appreciated, respected, esteemed, treasured, cherished, prized and held very dear to His heart.
When He thinks about us He thinks to Himself how valuable and important we are to Him, how much He treasures us and cherishes us, and how precious we are to Him.
His thoughts are this way because His love for us is unconditional. We cannot earn His love by doing good works. His love for us is given freely. Nor can we lose His love by behaving badly.
Did you know that God does not have bad children? He does have children that have done bad things, that’s called sin. And what did He say to those that wanted to stone the woman that was caught in the act of adultery? “He who is without sin cast the first stone.” And one by one her accusers walked away. And what did He say to this woman? “Your sins are forgiven, go and sin no more.” He could not do this if His thoughts towards her were wicked.
It does not matter what we have or have not said in the past, He still loves us!
It does not matter what we have or have not done in the past, He still loves us!
It does not matter if we are rich or poor, He still loves us!
It does not matter if we are educated or uneducated, He still loves us!
Roman 5:8 comforts us with these words, ” But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
His love for us is without conditions. There are no requirements to be met in order to be loved by Him. In fact, whether we love Him or not, He still loves us. He is for us and not against us. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God loves us so much that He gave His best, His Son, Jesus Christ to redeem us. He couldn’t do this if He thought we were not worth redeeming.
Jesus Christ loved us so much that He willingly shed His blood on the Cross to save us from our sins, to heal us of all sickness and diseases , to set us free from all bondage and promises to make us whole. Jeremiah 31:3 assures us, “Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” In order to redeem us His thoughts had to be pure and wholesome about us.
He loves us unconditionally, and thinks only the best about us.
