When you ask yourself, “What does God think of me?,” Psalm 40:5 answers that question very clearly…
Psalm 40:5 NKJV
 Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered.
We all sometimes wonder what does God think of me — are we just here on earth on our own? Is He distant from us? Does He hear our cries? Does He know when we are hurting or when we are happy? Does He know our needs? Does He know our plans? Let’s take a deeper look and see what the Bible tells us…
What does God think of me? The Bible says that His thoughts toward us are so numerous that they cannot be counted or numbered. He thinks so much of us, He created us in His image. We are His prized possession. We are His beloved. He thinks so much of us that He did not want us to be separated from Him because of Adam & Eve’s original Sin. So The Loving Father sent Jesus, HIs only son, to come into this world and offer Himself to die a brutal death – tortured, beaten, spit on, whipped and then hung on a tree as the eternal sacrifice for all of mankind to give us the gift of eternal life. He thinks so much of us that is not willing for any of us to perish, but wants all of us to have eternal life with Him.
What does God think of me? His thoughts are much higher than our thoughts and His ways are much higher than our ways. His plans for us are plans for good, peace, prosperity and hope. He thinks so much of us that He wants us to live a life worth living as He died a death worth dying to save us from being separated eternally from Him. As His crowning glory and prized possession in all of the universe, He knew we were worth saving for all of eternity.
Therefore, what do we do with this life that is so precious to God? Jesus summed it up like this in Matthew 22, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself.” These two commands sum up all of the Old Testament laws of the prophets.
Therefore, knowing what God thinks about me, we should desire to please Him as it is God’s desire (and plan) for us to love Him first and foremost, then show His love to others through our words and actions. By doing this, we are doing just as Jesus instructed us.
We are not perfect and He knows that, as He created us and the Bible tells us that He knows our frame (Psalm 103:14). We are to follow His plans, but He knows we will all stumble, fall and sin. God will always forgive us and bring us back to Himself as we confess our sins to Him.
He loves us dearly. He wants the best for us. He wants us to live a life worth living. That is His thoughts and His plan for our lives. He spoke and all of creation was made for His glory and He said, “it was good.” His Word never comes back to Him void or empty, but always accomplishes His purpose. We are all part of His plan and purpose. That is good news!
I love you and am praying for you today!
