Psalm 139:17-18

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
(ESV)
Saying that God's thoughts are precious is a two fold statement.  

First, it is a statement of reality.  For David, God's thoughts had become precious becaus he was beginning to understand what God was thinking about.  

Second, it is a statement of theory.  God's thoughts should be precious to us.  We should begin to put  a high priority on what God is thinking about us.  So, we begin to think of God's thoughts the way we should, which will lead us to a better understanding of reality.
