How precious to me are your thoughts...

Psalm 139:17 reads; How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!

The key words in this verse would have to be, 'O God!' right...?
How easy is it to live by this passage - but minus those two most important words? We'll not easy at all come to think of it! (otherwise known as living in a state of constant anxiety). So much of how we live is determined by what other people think.

I understand the first part of this next verse well,
but it's the second part that requires my undivided attention.

Proverbs 29:25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.

So im interested in what God thinks, nothing more, nothing less.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!

Well said brother, my name is Barry Condon, i worship God at Grace Christian Fellowship in Cork, Ireland. I was meditating on psalm 139:17 and decided to google it to see if there was any commentaries on it. Its a mind blowing verse !
May you and your family be blessed. A lovely family has just left our Church bound for Adelaide, where do you worship ?
Love in Christ
