“How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.” Psalm 139:17-18 (NIV)
This is part of a song written by David. When we read these words a question comes to us. It is this: How did David learn of God thoughts? How did he know that they were so infinite? We know that God did reveal His thoughts to David whenever David turned to God for His guidance. In the Old Testament of our Bible we read of many occasions when David did ask God to show him what to do. We believe that David had learned much about God’s thoughts in the sacred writings too. We realize that this is one very good way for us to know what God’s thoughts are. Yes, we can apply the truth of our verse to the way we learn of God's thoughts in the Bible. God has revealed so much of His thinking in the Bible and His thoughts are precious to us. Let’s be sure we don’t neglect making them a part of our lives.
