The Spirit reminded me this morning that while I often have widely divergent thoughts about myself—I’m a good man—No, I’m not—Yes, I am—No, I’m not—He has no such trouble.
In fact, His opinion of me is incredibly good, even astounding. It never wavers and He is never indecisive about me. I have moments when it overwhelms me. I like that. God knows exactly who I am because He re-made me into a son when I became a Christian some 29 years ago. Who better to ask than Him? Who better to trust than Him? And it's probably a lock that He's correct, don't you think?
Perhaps the best news is that He is going to carry on with me as though He is correct. Even when my thoughts about me are all messed up, He knows what's real and acts accordingly.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.
