Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb. All the days ordained for me were recorded in your scroll before one of them came into existence.
How difficult it is for me to fathom your thoughts about me, O Yahweh! How vast is their sum total!
Our thoughts are not complete when they vanish from our minds. If they leave as quickly as they came, we may have to be reminded of our great ideas. For a thought to be complete it must be followed up with words and actions that set these ideas into motion, having an end goal and a feeling of satisfaction that what we imagined could actually be accomplished.
Yahweh is not like us! His thoughts are complete from the moment they are formed and every word, law and action for the demonstration of His plan is laid out at its origin. There are no ad libs in the song that He sings over us, even the frilly notes were written in. (Psalm 92:5, Psalm 139:17, Isaiah 55:8, 9).
This is why we must see Him in the surprise events that seem to come out of nowhere, the sudden illness, the car accident, the sudden turn in our fortunes (for better or worse), even the unexpected love, the miracle of a baby or the opportunity we never saw coming but which gives the warmth and excitement of a child with her most desired gift.
I appreciate the profoundness (the depth and expansiveness) of His thoughts towards me. While I echo the sentiments of the Psalmist in that it is difficult to understand the extent and intensity of them, I use His creation as my example of the perfection in his thoughts and how He sustain His plans and vision for what He creates (Psalm 8).
I am the product of His original thoughts!
His thoughts go beyond the surface of my day or my circumstances and my acceptance of His plans being complete is evident in my trust.
Trust that His thoughts towards you are complete and good!
For I know the plans and thoughts I that I have for you, says Yahweh, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)
