God Is Always Thinking Upon Us

Charles Spurgeon

God Is Always Thinking Upon Us

“How precious also are thy thoughts unto me,‭ ‬O God.‭”
‬Psalm‭ ‬139:17

Divine omniscience affords no comfort to the ungodly mind,‭ ‬but to the child of God it overflows with consolation.‭

God is always thinking upon us,‭ ‬never turns aside his mind from us,‭ ‬has us always before his eyes‭; ‬and this is precisely as we would have it,‭ ‬for it would be dreadful to exist for a moment beyond the observation of our heavenly Father.‭

His thoughts are always tender,‭ ‬loving,‭ ‬wise,‭ ‬prudent,‭ ‬far-reaching,‭ ‬and they bring to us countless benefits:‭ ‬hence it is a choice delight to remember them.‭ ‬The Lord always did think upon his people:‭ ‬hence their election and the covenant of grace by which their salvation is secured‭; ‬he always will think upon them:‭ ‬hence their final perseverance by which they shall be brought safely to their final rest.‭

In all our wanderings the watchful glance of the Eternal Watcher is evermore fixed upon us–we never roam beyond the Shepherd’s eye.‭ ‬In our sorrows he observes us incessantly,‭ ‬and not a pang escapes him‭; ‬in our toils he marks all our weariness,‭ ‬and writes in his book all the struggles of his faithful ones.‭

These thoughts of the Lord encompass us in all our paths,‭ ‬and penetrate the innermost region of our being.‭ ‬Not a nerve or tissue,‭ ‬valve or vessel,‭ ‬of our bodily organization is uncared for‭;

‬all the littles of our little world are thought upon by the great God.
