Engraved…

(from “The Preciousness of God’s Thoughts” by Octavius Winslow)
It marvelous that God should think of us as He does.
God is infinitely great and holy; all worlds, all beings,
all events occupy His mind. Yet, He has individual
thoughts of His children; not mere passing glances
of the mind…
This is a truth too mighty to grasp were it not too
precious to refuse, and too divine to disbelieve.

…Isolated, poor and lowly as you may be, God, the
great holy Lord God thinks of you, notices you,
regards you, sets His heart upon you. His thoughts
cluster around you, clinging to you with a grasp so
fervent and intense as though He were solely and
supremely absorbed with you and your concerns.

Each child of God dwells in His heart, and
engages His mind as though he were the
sole occupant of this boundless universe!

O child of God! The thoughts that God has
of you are so vast that nothing can exceed,
and so precious that nothing can equal them. …
There is not a moment that he is not thinking of you!

Do not be cast down then, if God appears to
forget you. “My way is hidden from the Lord,”
says the desponding Christian.

“No!” says God, “I have engraved you on the
palms of My hands; you are continually before Me.”
