“But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me…”
Those who believe are never out of God’s thoughts. Great works faith or mighty deeds of courage are not necessary to draw Divine attention our way. Though we are without emotional, financial, mental, physical, or spiritual strength, God is always thinking of us. Those thoughts are all “yea” and Amen. God thinks only of our good and the Holy Spirit is weaving those thoughts into reality in our life.
God, who knows completely how far short we fall of even our own ideals, says, “Ask, and it shall be given…” The thoughts of our Creator are already with us awaiting our word to let blessing flow into our lives.
The wonder of it all is that poverty and the inability to supply ourselves is entirely of our own making…it was never the plan of God. It is when we exclude God that we are truly poor. What joy that the one who made water into wine for a poor man’s wedding is thinking about us and how to bless our lives. When we look at the stars marching in their courses, the streams that flow steadily to the sea, the mountain heights and the bounty of the valleys, who can doubt God’s ability? Or the Divine willingness to give us the best?
While God’s thoughts are with us, it is not meant to be a one-way street. As a man thinks in his own heart, so is he. The one who is thinking about God will find he never lacks for direction or focus. It is our thoughts aimed God-ward that grow the fruit of the Spirit in our hearts and in our souls.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
