“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
God is a Father who never has a negative thought about His children. His thoughts about us are always good. And He loves to think about His children because it causes Him to rejoice. Remember, how it was when you first fell in love? How you thought of that person all the time and most of your thoughts where good? Maybe you thought of a touch, an embrace or a kiss. Remember how the thoughts awaken and heighten your emotions so that they flowed through your body? Well, just think if our thoughts can affect our emotions, how much more God’s thoughts affect His emotions? After all we’re made in His imagine and likeness. God feels what He thinks just as we do. But unlike us His thoughts don’t come from the outside of Him, His thoughts come from Himself where there’s only love because He is Love.
So if you want to know what’s on the Father’s mind about you simply look at Jesus because He is the expression of all the thoughts and plans that God the Father had on His mind for His children. Jesus Christ the Son of God, the Word of God are the beautiful thoughts of God for all mankind.
One day, God thought my children will need a place where I can come and visit with them so He expressed His thought by speaking His Word and creating the world. Then He thought it’s not good that they be alone so I’ll make them male and female and together they will fill the earth. Then again He thought because I know they won’t always obey my commandments they will need someone to deliver them from the penalty of sin. So He thought I’ll give them my Son, my only begotten Son, to redeem them from death, and ransom their souls from the power of darkness. God’s thoughts towards us are always thoughts of peace and not evil to give us good in our final outcome because He loves us.
