How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
(Psalms 139:17 (NIV))

We could sit at the feet of God forever and still not be able to fathom the depth of His being! We would only begin to see a glimpse of His love. We would only begin to see a glimpse of His mercy.

We may not be able to fully comprehend His thoughts, for He is beyond our human comprehnsion. Even so, we must long to know His thoughts, for His thoughts are life. His thoughts are love. His thoughts are grace and mercy! We should long to be in His thoughts. To know His thoughts. We must desire to fulfill His thoughts so that our actions are in His Will.

God is infinite. Contrary to what some people believe, He is not dead. They simply do not see Him through their clouded vision. Perhaps that is another reason to long to know the thoughts of God, for when we know His thoughts, we see everything clearer.

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
(1 Corinthians 13:12(NIV))

When we know God’s thoughts, we see as if face to face. What a joyous thought!

Are the thoughts of God your joy?
