All the ‘littles’ of our little world!
Divine omniscience affords no comfort to the ungodly mind, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account!” Hebrews 4:13
But to the child of God it overflows with consolation, “How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, O God.” Psalm 139:17
God is always thinking upon us; He never turns aside His mind from us, and has us always before His eyes! This is precisely as we would have it–for it would be dreadful to exist for a moment, beyond the observation of our heavenly Father! His thoughts are always filial, tender, loving, wise–and they bring to us countless benefits. Hence it is a choice delight for us to remember them.
The Lord has always thought upon His people–hence their election and the covenant of grace by which their salvation is secured.
He always will think upon them–hence their continual preservation by which they shall be brought safely to their heavenly rest.
In all our wanderings, the watchful glance of the Eternal Watcher is evermore fixed upon us! We never roam beyond the Shepherd’s eye! In our sorrowsHe observes us incessantly, and not a pang escapes Him! In our toils He marks all our weariness, and writes in His book all the struggles of His faithful ones. These thoughts of the Lord encompass us in all our paths, and penetrate the innermost region of our being. Not a nerve or tissue, valve or vessel, of our bodily organization is uncared for. All the ‘littles’ of our little world, are thought upon by the great God!
Dear reader, is not this precious to you? The Lord lives and thinks upon you!
If the Lord thinks upon you, then all is well, and you may rejoice evermore!
