Have you ever sat politely and looked at pictures of someone’s grandchildren? Parents can be doting, but grandparents live to show off their grandkids. You can look at the same pictures and not feel a thing, but the grandparent feels nothing but love. That’s how God looks at us. He dotes on us constantly.
It’s easy to assume that God is like us. If He’s thinking of Jack, then He can’t be thinking of me until He shifts His attention. Not so. God is God. He is not like us. He can focus His full attention on every single person at the same time. And He constantly thinks of us.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God. How great is the number of them. (Ps 139:17)
Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. (Ps 40:5)
It’s amazing to realize that God thinks of us constantly. Now, just imagine what happens when we turn our thoughts to Him at the same time. It’s almost like electricity connecting from opposite ends to create a massive explosion of love and power.
God is a doting Father and He loves you more than anyone ever. Enjoy that today.
