The Indescribable God [Part 3]   Leave a comment

Psalm 139

Psalm 139

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!” Ps 139:17-18

  • The God who thinks about us

God does not use mass production methods to meet the world’s demand of new borns. The Divine Artist meticulously creates unique works with His hands. For each one of us He had a purpose in mind when He created us. The reason of our existence is distinguishable from other people. I have put aside some inventions I created when the purpose for which they were designed have been fulfilled. Some of these inventions have never been used because they no longer had their raison d’etre. For some time these inventions were important and useful. Afterwards, I eventually forgot about their complexity, resources I invested and even their existence. Not so with God’s works. He does not forget us after He created us. The reason why we exist on this earth is not to survive by eating and drinking but to live by accomplishing the purpose God created us for. Each one of us is a piece of puzzle and God’s thoughts are constantly on us because we are part of the paint work of the Divine Artist.

I believe that the reason God created each baby was not to destine them to hell but for them to serve His purpose and have part with Him in heaven. There will be unfortunately a large unfinished puzzle in heaven because many pieces will be lost.

It might seem illogical that God gives so much importance to sinful insignificant creatures as us but the scriptures tell us so. Paul described in 1 Corinthians 12 that we are different members but yet part of the body of Christ. The body will survive without a nail but it will lose its beauty and make it more vulnerable. Each vein has its purpose even if by itself it is just a tiny blood carriage. We should not undermine the reason of our existence. God made us so wonderfully complex and yet many people have some complex of inferiority!

We usually have in our thoughts people we value and I guess the reason God thinks about us is simply because we are important to Him. God’s thoughts about us cannot be numbered. It is as if the invention God created has been awaited since eternity past to accomplish its purpose while it lives. The world’s life expectancy is on the average 70 years. This is on the average the time we have to execute what God is asking of us. No one else will be able to do what we were designed to do and I guess that when God looks at the undone work, His eyes relentlessly turn on the one designated for it.

This was God’s voice echoing in Isaiah’s ears “Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? ” Is. 6:8

Isaiah eventually responded to the purpose God created him by going where God sent him. I believe Jesus was thinking of you and I when He said “The harvest is great but the laborers are few“. Luke 10:2

God has projects in store for us and He gave us spiritual gifts and ministries to accomplish them. His thoughts about us are so numerous that David compared it to sand. Inventors enjoy seeing their inventions fulfilling the reason of their existence. The world would have been different today if we had no electromagnetic generators, bulbs or computers. If Faraday or Edison did not make their inventions and God showed them afterwards what they could have done, they would have been regretfully depressed. Each new day we live is a countdown to accomplish our purpose.

It seems David felt pursued as soon as he woke up. He felt like a baby who did not have to call for attention because the mother was already awaiting by the cradle for it to awake.

Many suffer rejection, feel ignored and unimportant. They have no purpose in life and are miserable. If they knew the God David described in Psalm 139, their lives would no longer be the same.

My child, you have been in my thoughts since eternity past and I have purposefully created you to accomplish my will today. Where are you?”
