Psalm 139:13-18 encourages me.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.
God values you. He thinks the world of you. He is so convinced that you are an amazing person. Do you think God is wrong? He made you! Every delicate little fiber of your body was put together by him. You are a miraculous quilt of blood and skin and muscle and tendons and tissues and hair. He knit you together in your mother’s womb. Even there you couldn’t escape his presence. He could see you so clearly in that secret, quiet place. God has made you wonderfully complex! That’s why nobody else can figure you out!
Only God knows your intimate soul. Only God can completely understand your deepest passions. Only God. He has known you since the day you were conceived. He mapped out and then recorded every day of your life. His heart gushes for you. He loves you so much. His thoughts about you are so precious! They are so wonderful. And he never stops thinking about you. He never forgets you. He is always constantly thinking about you. Innumerable thoughts! You couldn’t count all the thoughts God has about you. More than the grains of the sand of this earth is how many times God thinks about you. And every single day is like that. From day to day, every time you wake up, God loves you and is already thinking about you.
May you be so encouraged today. May you understand that you are understood. May you never feel alone again. May you always feel so important, so special, so loved. God sees your heart. God has mapped out a plan for you. God is with you. God created you- you! God is thinking about you right now. May you live encouraged and refreshed and re-powered in the knowledge that God knows and loves you.
