You Have Searched Me And Know Me
The Psalmist writes, "You have searched me and known me." He goes on to list some of the ways in which God knows him, everything about him, all his ways, and even the meditations of his heart.
There is never a time or a place where God is far away. He is always there, and is always thinking about us. And his thoughts are thoughts of good, to give us a future and a hope.

If I Were To Number Them...
In today's passage from Psalms, the writer ponders the fact that the thoughts of God toward each one of us are more than the grains of sand. And Scripture tells us that his thoughts toward us are all good. They are precious, and we are precious to him.
So next time you feel as though God is just waiting to destroy you, or he's angry with you, or he has turned his back on you, remember the words of this Psalm. No matter where you are in life, he is with you, and he is thinking about you; and all his thoughts toward you are peace, not evil, to give you a good future and a beautiful hope in something true.
And remember that God's thoughts toward the lost and dying all around you every single day are more than the grains of sand. If God is thinking about the lost ones whose paths you will cross, and if he is crying out to hold them and save them from eternity in hell, what can our response be besides bringing them the Good News of reconciliation with God through Christ Jesus.
This is exactly why we spend our time and resources reaching out to people all around the world through Second Life, a 3-D virtual reality community on the Internet God has called us to reach. And with the backing of your prayers and financial support, we are receiving report after report of those who are giving their lives to Jesus as a result of this ministry.
Currently there are more than 12,672,505 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number continues to grow by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
