Psalms 139:17-18 – 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.
We were not an afterthought. Even as so many walk around aimlessly, wondering whether there is some greater purpose to be served by them, we are assured that His vision for us is grand. And, the thing about life is that, because He thinks so highly of us, at some point we need to have some esteem about who we are in Him. In this, we’ll have to adjust our focus in order to see our own value, and find the courage to let Him have His way with us. Growth in the Lord requires us to begin seeing ourselves the way the Lord see us; and, finding comfort in the fact that He took the time to craft every part of us for His glory. We are always on His mind; He should always be on ours.
