Just A Thought...


17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. 

(Psalm 139:17-18  NKJV)

What comfort this selection should give to each of us. Our Loving God thinks of us so much that His thoughts about us are more in number than the grains of sand in existence.

 I've heard a story told about a little boy who, almost worriedly, asked his Grandfather, "Is God watching me all the time? Does He see everything I do?". The Grandfather replied, "God loves you so much that He can't take His eyes off of you.".

God loves us all so much that He, as Jesus the Christ, took extraordinary measures about 2000 years ago by leaving His Throne in Heaven, coming to earth as a man, living a sinless life, then shedding His Innocent Blood to pay the penalty for all of our sins (see 1 Peter 1:18-19) and dying in our stead on Calvary. Then He was raised back to life, still a man, and has returned to His Throne in Heaven to be our human advocate. (see 1John 2:1) He did all of this to ensure that we would be able to be with Him, living in His Presence for all of time.

Until we are in Heaven with Him, He is watching over us all of the time.

The Love of God is Awesome!!!
