“O Lord, what great works you do! And how deep are your thoughts” (Psalm 92:5, NLT).

This world has produced some great and deep thinkers—philosophers, mathematicians, preachers, statesmen, inventors and engineers. We admire them for their intelligence and contributions to society. Where would we be without their inventions and innovations? I for one am happy so many smart people are out there thinking up new things. Not all of them have been for the best, but that’s life.

Of course, none of our deep thinkers can come close to the deepest thinker of all time. God’s thoughts are unimaginably deep and wonderful—too wonderful for us to comprehend. Not only are his inventions amazing—just consider water, oxygen and food—the depths of his love, grace and mercy are beyond our reach. Our minds can’t begin to grasp the love that compelled Jesus to go to the cross for us. He is the original and best thinker and amazingly, his thoughts are for us!
