When you ask yourself, “What does God think of me?,” Psalm 40:5 answers that question very clearly…

Psalm 40:5 NKJV
[5] 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.

Good Morning!

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!

Scriptures for reference – Good reading!

Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV
[11] For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. [12] Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. [13] And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Isaiah 55:8-11 ESV
[8] For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
[9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

[10] “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
[11] so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

John 3:15-17 NKJV
[15] that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. [16] For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. [17] For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Matthew 22:37-40 NKJV
[37] Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ [40] On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Acts 17:28 NIV
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
