So a couple of days ago, I was reading Psalm 8 and verse 4 stuck out to me:
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
The word “mindful” really stuck with me so I looked it up in the dictionary and 3 phrases stuck out to me:
1. attentive of/to – God is attentive to our needs, wants and desires (He definitely knows about our sexual desires, and yes He will help you with those as well, just ask God to help you to stay pure and trust Him!). He knows us inside and out, and He knows what we need before we even ask. (Psalm 139 & Matthew 6:25-34)
2. aware of – God is aware of what’s going on in our hearts, minds and our lives. He delights (takes pleasure in) in every little detail of our lives! He cares about how tired we are, what’s bothering us, what makes us happy and laugh and what makes us sad and cry.
3. careful of – God is also cautious and thorough when it comes to us. He makes sure that we’re taken care of and that He doesn’t give us things to hastily, only in His perfect timing. He knows us so well and knows how we will respond to things, good and bad. He protects us, soothes and calms us and most importantly He loves and cherishes us! He loves us enough to say no or not right now and He loves us enough to bless us as well!
So remember, Our Father is mindful of us, regardless of what we’ve done in the past, or how we’ve messed up yesterday or in the last 5 minutes, He is still right beside us, attending to us!
Be blessed & encouraged!
