Details Part Two

The Lord sees the whole picture of our lives. Nothing escapes His notice. Talk about detail, Luke 12:7 says that He knows the number of hairs on our head.
 
Psalm 56:8 says, “You number my wanderings; put my tears in Your bottle; are they not in Your book?
 
Psalm 139 is a great reminder of how attentive the Lord is to us. Verses 2-4 say, “You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.”
 
Verses 17-18 say, “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.”
 
I would like you to see yourself putting a small handful of sand in the palm of your hand and try counting them in your mind. Yet He thinks of us more than ALL the sands of the sea. The Lord is thinking about you constantly.
 
Here is another great truth to remember. 1 Chronicles 28:9 Amplified says, “…For the Lord searches all hearts and minds and understands all the wanderings of the thoughts…”
 
God’s word is powerful enough to split between our thoughts and intentions and discern our true motives. As we follow the details of His word for progressive sanctification, He will reveal the hidden lies in our heart that influence our thought process, help us course-correct, and lead us into His experiential truth that will set us free.
