How precious are your thoughts concerning me, O God! How vast in number they are!
If I try to count them, there would be more of them than there are grains of sand.
Discovering blogs by Nigerians was quite a thrill for me. I have been amused, impressed, challenged, and finally proud to be Nigerian – no, not just because of a couple of blogs but that is a story for another day.
One thing that inspired me in some of the blogs I have discovered was a series by LondonBuki which she tagged “Mummy Monday” dedicated to extolling her mom. At this point, I would like to say a word of prayer for LondonBuki’s mom. If you ever discover my blog, you don’t know I read yours, but I am touched by your affection for your mother and my prayer is that God will perfect all that concerns her health, in Jesus name.
Well, following in the footsteps of LondonBuki’s series, I am starting mine which I will call “STSA – Something to Shout About”. This is a post that will pick a portion of scripture that speaks of the “riches of the glory of [God’s] inheritance [for Christians]”. See, I have come to realize that a lot of Christians are stuck in a portrait of God’s word. For many, they do not understand that the picture in the frame has leaped out and is now present with us in full glorious color. As they say, the taste of the pudding is in the eating. In the same way, the experiencing of the jubilee is in the celebration.
Today, my shouting scripture is from Psalm 139v17-18. See this is a portion of God’s word that should not remain on the written pages. It wasn’t meant to be black ink on white paper. It was an acknowledgement of David. Now, it is my acknowledgement. God is actually making plans for me, not just small plans, not just big plans, but WOW plans, VALUABLE plans, PRECIOUS plans; plans that began before the foundation of the world and are still playing out day by day, Plans that are so many I couldn’t count them all; that’s like a really, really long to-do list on how to keep me on top of the charts.
See with this information, I never have to worry another day of my life. I never have to fret another second, or ponder or wonder. There’s a Royal Plan in the workings for my life, backed by Royal Treasury. Fully insured; financed and furnished. It don’t matter what comes at me, see there are PRECIOUS THOUGHTS to turn things for me. It don’t matter who don’t like me, there are MEGA PLANS to put me over. It don’t matter how low I start out, there are VALAUBLE RESOURCES to take me to the heights.
Definitely something to shout and dance about.
