March 16, 2017: SOAP #2660: Deuteronomy 30-31; Psalm 40; 1Corinthians 1

Scripture: Psalm (NIV) 40:16 But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, “The LORD be exalted!”
17 Yet I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.

Observation: David was meditating on the Lord. In his mind, he was contemplating God's goodness. God was to be praised! It was good that David had God in his thoughts, but what he wanted was to be in God's thoughts! 'May the Lord think of me.'

Application: What a special joy arises in my heart when I consider that the Great Creator God is thinking of me! I am in His thoughts!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, what an amazing thing: You thinking of me. Amen
