Read: Psalm 139:1-18
This is such an awesome Psalm. So much is said here. God knows everything about us, and He has searched us thoroughly and understands and knows all our thoughts. He knows how we will respond to things. Nothing we do or say could ever surprise Him. There is nowhere we can go to get away from Him, or to hide from Him. He knows where we are at all times. I find that quite comforting to know. He loves us so much that He would be that concerned for us. He is always there to guide us, and to lead us (v: 10).
He knitted us together in our Mothers womb. We were, “…intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].” (v: 15) I love that description. We are like a beautiful embroidery the Lord has woven. He saw our unformed substance, while we were being formed in the womb. All our days were written in His book, before we were even born (v: 16). How very special we are to the Lord. He has such an awesome plan for each of us. We are not here by accident. We have a purpose and a destiny in God. We are here for a reason. God has a dream and a vision that He has placed in each one of us to fulfil.
How precious are His thoughts toward us. They out number the sand (v: 17-18). Isn’t that incredible? God must think about us all the time. This really struck me as I was reading this passage. To know we are on God’s mind that much. That He could care and be concerned with our lives that much, is such a comforting thing to know. What love is that!
May we today have a deeper sense of God’s presence with us wherever we may be, wherever we may go, whatever we may be doing today. Take comfort in knowing that God is thinking of you and is always with you.
“…For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!].” ~ Hebrews 13:5b (AMP)
Where could I go from your spirit?
And why would I want to hide?
For you care so much about me, Lord,
And are always by my side.
