The Sum of Them

“For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:13-18‬‬

His thoughts towards you outnumber the sand! That is an inestimable statement. We can’t begin to count the grains of sand, that is impossible. That’s how many thoughts God has towards each one of us. WOW! God loves and thinks about each one of us that much. I’m in awe of His love towards us. There is nothing we can or can’t do to change that.

If His thoughts towards you outnumber the sand than He Is always with you; He will never leave you!

“For the LORD will not abandon His people, Nor will He forsake His inheritance.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭94:14‬‬

We are His people, that means just what it says; He will not abandon His people. Never ever! No matter what happens in our lives God is always with us. We have to listen to truth and not our feelings. Our feelings are not always reliable. Our emotions are all over the place sometimes. When life is going well it’s easy to believe that He is with us. It’s during those hard and difficult times that we struggle with knowing God is with us. Those are the times we have to know and believe in His word. His word is TRUTH!

We have trouble believing that truth when we don’t see Him working in our circumstances. We doubt He is with us. That’s when we have to rely on the truth. “For the LORD will not abandon His people! 

“Nor will He forsake His inheritance.” Does that boggle your mind like it does mine? We are His inheritance! That statement speaks volumes of His love towards us. We are of great value to Him. We are His inheritance. That statement keeps going through my mind; I am of great value to my Father! I’ve read that scripture before but this time it really struck me to my core. I have never thought of myself as an inheritance. One of the meanings for inheritance is portion. We are His portion. Portion: the part of an estate that goes to an heir. He is our Heir and we are His inheritance. Again, WOW! My heart is in awe! Let’s put that in perspective. We are invaluable to HIM! Can you comprehend that?

The next time you are feeling worthless, remember these words; You are His inheritance, your worth is beyond calculable and priceless!

There is freedom in truly believing your worth to God. You no longer have to worry about messing up. You are forgiven of all mistakes. You ask for forgiveness and try to do better. That eases my mind. To know that I am forgiven and that there is nothing I can do right or wrong to change God’s thoughts towards me. His thoughts towards me outnumber the sands after all!

You are fearfully and wonderfully made! You one of a kind! You are His people, His inheritance!

When you’re struggling and feeling alone, know that God is thinking about you.
