Good Words for Today: November 4

“I know the thoughts that I think toward you” (Jeremiah 29:11).  God thinks about us! That may be the most important statement you’ll ever hear. The God of the universe thinks about us. He considers us, he knows us, he remembers us, he keeps us in mind. He knows who we are and where we are. Not for one second are we ever lost or forgotten for his heart is so big and his knowledge so vast that no one ever gets lost in the shuffle. I find great comfort the following truth. God knows what he is thinking even when we don’t. Many times I have said, “Lord, what are you doing? Why is this happening?” So much of life makes no sense. The good and the bad, the happy and the sad, it all gets jumbled together with apparently no rhyme or reason, and even if I say to myself, “God has a plan,” it’s rarely clear to me. But God knows what he is thinking even when his thoughts are hidden from me. We know so little. We understand so little. We have so many questions. But this much is clear. God is thinking about us—always.
