Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful! God, I’ll never comprehend them! I couldn’t even begin to count them—any more than I could count the sand of the sea. —Psalm 139:17–18 msg
Did you know that the God of the universe, the sovereign ruler over all the earth is thinking about you? Our president has the people of the United States of America on his mind on a daily basis. Occasionally, some are granted the privilege of a personal meeting and a few exchanged words; then, it is time to move on. He probably doesn’t go to sleep each night thinking of everyone he met that day, never mind the millions he has never met.
But God our Father is thinking about us every day, and his thoughts are one hundred percent accurate. He doesn’t think we are smarter or less able than we are. He doesn’t think we are as godly as the image we try to present at times or dismiss us as hopeless wretches when that is how we feel. God knows all that is true and loves us totally.
God always sees us as beautiful and amazing; it is we who change as the world around us changes. Our challenge is to keep the image of the woman God sees more prominent than the image of the woman we see with our human eyes. The new hat that God offers for our wardrobe represents putting on his truth every time we look in our human mirror.
