“When discovered, this heart prayer becomes a one-line prayer that best expresses the desire of your heart for Him. It is meant to be expressed to Him over and over again, all throughout the day, anytime you think of it.” Linda Boone; Intimate Life Lessons
“O Eternal One, You have explored my heart and know exactly who I am; You even know the small details like when I take a seat and when I stand up again. Even when I am far away, You know what I’m thinking.”
When you first came to know Christ as your personal savior you were full of joy to discover that someone loved you that much. To know that Someone who had never even known sinned, had been willing to become sin itself, just so you could be reconciled back to the loving embrace of Abba. (1 Cor. 5:18-21) And the joy you experienced may have sustained you for weeks, months, even a couple of years.
But then there came a time, a day, a week, a month, a year, a situation, a relationship or just…something – anything, that suddenly made you think that God had changed. That He was no longer cognizant of whatever it was you were going through. As if He no longer thought about you. As though He had Alzheimer’s or Dementia…that He either forgot something very important about you, or maybe stopped noticing you altogether.
Like a father who has become too busy to see or notice their children anymore, and without realizing it, no longer knows them or knows what’s important to them.
Unintentional neglect…but neglect all the same.
King David must have had times like that too because in one of his songs he makes a point of declaring that God never stops thinking about us, no matter what is going on, or what it is we may or may not have done. And it was that awareness of how many times a day God thought about David, that inspired an awareness within David to think about God.
The above video on Youtube asks the question: Does God Know What It’s Like To Be You? As you spend time soaking/resting/abiding in Abba’s love ask Him if knows what it’s like to be you? If He thinks about you during the day when you’re at work or school or when you’re hanging out with friends, kicking back with a book or working around the house.
Ask Him if He thinks about you when you’re not thinking about Him? And if so, what kind of thoughts is He thinking?
Be sure to journal what your see/hear/feel – you might be surprised by the answers.
