On my mind
Psalm 8:3-4 ESV
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
This scripture is an encouragement for us; a reminder that we are on GOD's mind.
This week two of my dear sisters in CHRIST both reached out to me. Both expressed that I was continually on their minds; past the usual, "let me check on my sister" kind of thought. They both expressed how it was almost as if they couldn't shake me from their spirits. They both knew that they should be praying for me, past the usual prayers. I do not talk to either of these women on a daily basis, and honestly I don't need to. Not because I do not desire to have more down time in which I could do so, but because they are so in tune with GOD that most of the time they pray for what I need without me ever speaking a word to them. As I considered this, GOD said tell my people that they are on my mind.
GOD loves you so dearly that HE's numbered the hairs on your head. Not counted them; as in giving a sum total of 50,000 strands. No, HE knows that you left strand number 356, 289 and 428 in the brush last night before you went to bed. HE knows that number 42, 86 and 94 fell to the ground this morning. Why would GOD pay such close attention to something that HE does not care about? Exactly, HE wouldn't. GOD cares for you.
I want to encourage you today, on this National Day of Prayer, and everyday forward to pray for those that GOD may place on your mind. Even if you do not know why you are thinking of them; begin to pray. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you as you pray. You will find yourself praying often for things that may seem strange to you. But trust that the Holy Spirit will only guide you into all truth. Be diligent and remember that your prayers are needed in your local assembly, your community and this world.
