Today’s Exhortation – My thoughts of you are beautiful
I was driving home from work one day and was complaining to God about my perceived inability to hear His voice. I eventually stopped complaining when I came to a stop at a traffic light. I had barely stopped to think when I heard in my head “MY THOUGHTS OF YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.” It took me about 3 seconds to process what I had just heard. When I realised what had just happened I was speechless! I couldn’t stop smiling for the rest of my journey home. At that time, I was not be used to the fact that God truly loves us. I can’t express the joy that bubbled up on the inside of me. I had finally heard Him!! But, it wasn’t hearing Him that blew me away. It was what He said. My complaining turned into praise! I couldn’t help but praise Him!
There’s this misconception that God is always looking out to judge right or wrong. Nothing could be further from the truth. David in his many meditations wrote, “Many things, O Yahweh my God, You have done. Your wonderful deeds and Your thoughts toward us. There is none to compare with You. If I tried to proclaim and tell of them, they would be too numerous to count. (Psalm 40:5). The Lord Himself said, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11). God loves you!
