“How precious also are Thy thoughts of me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” Psalm 139:17
There was never anyone so faithful or considerate or far-seeing as Jesus. He had great commendation to give a woman, a follower who came early to the tomb to ready His body for burial. She came beforehand with her ministry to Him. He was always thinking ahead of the disciples. When He sent them to prepare the Passover, there was found an upper room furnished and prepared. He had thought it all out. His plans were not made only for that day. He was always in advance of time. When the disciples came back from fishing, Jesus was on the seashore with a fire of coals and fish laid thereon. He thinks of the morning duties before you stir; He is there before you. He is waiting long before you awake. His anticipations are all along the way of life before you.
After the resurrection, the disciples were bewildered, and the way looked black. But the angel said, “Behold, He goes before you into Galilee.”
He is always ahead, thinking ahead, preparing ahead. Take this text with you into your future, take it into today’s experience:
“Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid… I go to prepare a place for you.”
He is out in the world doing it. He will be there before you. He will bring you to your appointed place, and you will find your appointed resources. You will discover His insight, His oversight, and His foresight. You may not always see Him, but you can walk by faith in the dark if you know that He sees you, and you can sing as you journey, even through the night.

“We mean a lot to Some One, and ’tis everything to me
That to God His wayward children were worth a Calvary.
It’s the meaning of my Sunday, and to Saturday from Monday,
It is my hope that one day my Savior I shall see.
Though the day be dark and dreary, here’s comfort for the weary–
We mean a lot to Some One Who died for you and me!”
