In this article, I would like to share with you one of my Prayer Meditation in our Prayer Celebrations every Thursday at 7:00 pm. You can tune in to our Gladbrook United Methodist Church Facebook of to my Facebook. This is a Facebook Live Stream Prayer Celebration.
God is a GOD OF TIMING. The Bible reveals to us that our God is a God of seasons. Our experiences with Him are always in the context of SEASONS…. It means that HE IS EXACT in His plans, and He is exact in His plans for you and me. Too often Christians will take just whatever comes our way in life. This should not be. We should reach out and take what God wants us to take. So the big question is: “How do we know what He wants us to take?” It is significant that we need to affirm that He wants us to take His promises for us and receive it by faith.
Have you considered this question in your faith journey: “What is it that God thinks about us when He is thinking about us?”
Many Christians failed to recognize that God has a mindset or God has his own thoughts.
Psalm 115:12-16 proclaims:
“12 The LORD has been mindful of us; He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron. 13 He will bless those who fear the LORD, Both small and great.
14 May the LORD give you increase more and more, You and your children. 15 May you be blessed by the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. 16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men.

This Scripture tells us that the Lord has been mindful of us. What that means is simply that God is full of thoughts about mankind. So, we need to ask, “What is it that God thinks about us when He is thinking about us?”
What you write in a letter is what you feel in your heart and what you think with your mind. God has written a letter to mankind. It is His Word and in His Word He shares His desires to clothe human being with His Glory (Hebrews 1:1-3; Galatians 3:27 NIV, among other verses).
Hebrews 1:1-3
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his pow-erful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven

Galatians 3:27
27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. (Here Paul is trying to address what to means to be a child of God).
In Christ, in His letter, God shares Hs desire to bring increase, abundance, emotional stability, and well-being (health) to His children. Another example is 3 John 2:
2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

When I hear people make statement like, “God had a purpose in making me destitute,” it reveals how little they know about the nature and the mind of God. God is mindful of us because He loves us even while we were yet sinners. THE IS THE DEPTHS OF GOD’S LOVE. God is mindful of us because He wants the BEST for you and for me. God is mindful of us and desires for us to understand and TRUST Him without hesitation. Trusting God is a part of faith. And faith pleases God.

Hebrews 11:6 declares:
6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Look at verses 7-12 of chapter 11:
7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[b] considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as count-less as the sand on the seashore.

God’s plan for us today is GOOD, GREATER, BETTER, AND BEST-not bad and less. REMEMBER, God is a God of more! His plan is increase. He wants an increase in our spiritual life. He wants an increase in your physical life. He wants an increase in your family life, in your church life, in your economic life. He wants an increase in your emotional life. As you increase the territory of God in your life and as God increases His mission field in your life, your faith becomes more confi-dent. The more that you receive the clarity of God’s revelation of His mindset.
So, if you ever wonder what God thinks about you, according to His Word, it is good thoughts.

For further readings: read Psalm 40:5; Psalm 139:17.
