“Did You Think About Me?” (Psalms 139:17-18)

My friend’s wife once shared with me an endearing exchange that she regularly does with her husband.

“Sometimes when I call Jake at work or if he calls me, I will ask him, ‘Did you think about me?’ ”

Oh my! Talk about pressure! There is, of course, only one correct answer as ANY husband can attest. “Of course, Sweetheart!” She laughed when she told me this story but apparently, she has also shared this with other wives. Now, even my wife has asked me this question. It was an easy answer for me since I am ALWAYS thinking about my wife! LOL!

If I were truly always thinking about my wife, the vast majority of our conflicts would disappear or never begin. Instead, thinking about her sometimes becomes an afterthought, especially after a difficult day at work. But who could ever fulfill such a task?

How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!

Psalms 139:17-18 (NLT)

The sheer grandeur of this statement is staggering. God loves me so deeply and He continually thinks about me, but not only me, but every living creature who has lived or ever will live, all at the same time. Only an omnipotent and omniscient God can do this. Why? He continually wants to reassure all believers in Jesus Christ that He will never leave nor forsake us. 

“Did you think about me?”

Even with my best intentions, I will never be able to answer this truthfully. All praise to the living God that He is always thinking about me.

What an awesome God He is!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
