"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 GOD IS THINKING OF YOU by David Wilkerson

I have a short message for those who are experiencing a painful, overwhelming situation. I am not speaking to those who now enjoy a time of rest from suffering, who are not in any kind of pain or sorrow. Thank God for those times of quiet rest.

Rather, I receive many letters from precious followers of Jesus who are living with incredible inner sorrow and crisis situations: divorce, children on drugs or in jail, the death of a spouse. A woman deeply in love with the Lord grieves over the death of her children, who suffocated in a fire. A pastor grieves for his wife, who left him and his children for a lesbian lover.

I have a message for you godly people who are suffering. In Psalm 40, David cried, “Innumerable evils have surrounded me. . . Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me!” (Psalm 40:12-13). “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You. . . But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God” (40:16-17).

I have been so blessed and comforted by this one line in verse 17: “The Lord thinks upon me.” Imagine that! The Lord who created all things, the God of this universe, thinks about me. Even now, in your hour of need, His thoughts are about you.

When Israel was captive in Babylon, mourning over the loss of homes and families, God sent word to them through Jeremiah: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). God said to His people, “Your nightmare is going to end. I have only good, loving thoughts toward you, and if you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me.”

Pour out your heart to the Lord. He is thinking of you!

I appreciate this message by David Wilkerson, because it is in a time of great trial that we must know and believe that God is for us, and that He is working all things together for our good.

It is is when we are going through fiery trials that the enemy as the accuser of the brethren will accuse God to us as being unjust and unfair. We can silence the voice of the accuser by laying claim to the blood of Jesus that makes us overcomers and more than conquerors in every dark place that we go through.

Then there are those that have missed it and are suffering chastisement, and again the enemy will bring accusation against the saints. In this situation it is an absolute necessity to know that God chastens those that He loves, and He has our highest good in mind, and that is that we would be partakers of His holiness.

So when we are going through trials, we count it all joy. God is not sadistic and does not get any pleasure out of seeing his children suffer, but He has a higher purpose in everything that we go through, and that purpose is that we would be conformed into the image and likeness of Christ.
