June 23 – Outnumbers

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.” Psalm 139:17-18 (NASB)

This isn’t our first visit to these verses. Just a week ago we considered verse 17. Psalm 139 is a gold mine of promises God has given to us in this, song by David. What brings such praise and adoration to our mind and so our lips express the joy of God’s thoughts comes forth? Let’s consider these truths through some comments by C.H. Spurgeon. The comfort in these verses is not shared and provides no such comfort to the unregenerate ungodly mind, but to us faith believers in God it overflows with consolation. God is always thinking about us, never turns His mind from us, always has us before His eyes; and this is precisely how we would want it, because it would be dreadful to exist for a moment outside the observation of our heavenly Father. We are never for a single moment left out of God’s thoughts and consciousness. Remember, God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world was made. So we can know that our election and the covenant of grace which secures our salvation results in our final perseverance from now to our final rest.
