""How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!" Psalm 139:17
I can't get enough of this verse. God is thinking about you right now and always. How important is it that we understand God-thinking? The most important thought in your life. If you were to ascertain all that God is thinking toward you you wouldn't have a worry in the world. You wouldn't be easily fooled by the pressure of advertising and you wouldn't want to run off to greener pastures.
You wouldn't have a worry because you would fully understand that with God nothing is impossible.
You won't be easily fooled by the pressure of advertising because you will know that God will meet all your needs.
You won't want to run off to greener pastures because you will realize that you are where you are supposed to be today, maybe not yesterday, maybe not tomorrow, but today you are where you are supposed to be.
God is thinking into reality the path that is ahead of you. Keep in mind that God has already forgotten your past sins and indiscretions so the future is bright without the cumbersome baggage of unforgiven sin. If you were to listen to God and follow the path everything will work out. I've had to learn, the hard way, that everything working out doesn't mean that there will be no suffering or injustice. There will be. Along the way there will be people who just can't live without doing you harm and so be it. But God has a way of working out the details so that we can have an expected end of joy and peace in our lives. You need to learn to trust God in that way.
Stop thinking that if your prayer isn't answered in the just the way you presented it, that it means that God did not or is not going to answer your prayer, and for your good and for the good of others at the same time. It's a God thing to answer prayers and only God can do it. Not only that, there will always be an element of mystery in the operation of how God does this or that. Flow with it. See if what God has done and is doing on your behalf is not perfect in every way. You will have to put your spiritual eyes on, but they should be on all the time anyway. God is thinking of you and that is enough to bring to pass anything and everything good for you. Trust God in this and let God have His way with you for a while. You will be taken deep and to places in the heart you didn't even know were there and there will be times when fear will overwhelm you, but you are being carried by a loving God who thinks about you all the time. What else could be more comforting. Just fall back into the hands of God and rest for a while. God will think you caught and you will be caught.
