LEARNING TO COUNT Psalm 139:14-18
How precious to me are your thoughts, God … If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. (vv17-18)
My son is learning to count from one to ten. He counts everything from toys to trees. He counts things I tend to overlook, like the wildflowers on his way to school or the toes on my feet.
My son is also teaching me to count again. Often I become so immensed in things I haven’t finished or things I don’t have that I fail to see all the good things around me. I have forgotten to count the new friends made this year and the answered prayers received, the tears of joy shed and the times of laughter with good friends.
My ten fingers are not enough to count all that God gives me day by day. “Many, Lord my God, all the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.” (Psalm 40:5) How can we even begin to count all the blessings of salvation, reconciliation, and eternal life?
Let us join David as he praises God for His precious thoughts about us and all He has done for us, when he says, “How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand” (Psalm 139:17-18) Lets learn to count again. Leila Ochoa
PRAYER LINE: Lord, Your works are so many and good I can’t count them all. But I thank You for each one.
Lets thank God for His countless blessing (ODB)
