Thirst for His Thoughts

"The thoughts of man… are vanity… In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul" (Psalm 94:11,19).  "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD… Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established" (Proverbs 16:1,3).  "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father… that He would grant you… to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:14-19). 

The thoughts of man are vanity,
And foolishly they are inclined
To fall for the insanity
Of blindly following the blind. 

The thoughts of God are wonderful
Provided in His precious Word
With comforts that delight the soul
Through promises that we have heard. 

The preparations of the heart,
With thoughts that dwell on things above,
Our Lord and Savior will impart
That we may comprehend His love. 

Lord, thank You for Your thoughts so great
That satisfy our deepest thirst
As we are called to contemplate
Your wondrous love that loved us first!
