“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:17).

The mind of the ungodly is perplexed by what exists beyond his reach. He has rested upon his opinions of life and love, and as a result never known either. His restlessness drives him in dual directions thus condemning him to a divided life. The evidence of God cannot be completely ignored, but an admission of God’s existence would contradict the natural passions that demand attention. But the believer knows that God’s mind is constantly focused upon him. Therefore he is aware that his life is lived under the scrutiny of the only One who will give special attention to details. He knows our fame and frailties, but intensely works upon and within us to produce what He wills. He never gives up but maintains His attention upon His beloved. We learn to trust Him for the outcome of yielding everything to Him. The knowledge of God stabilizes us and saves us from the inner wars of the ungodly to produce the peace that passes all understanding.
