Psalm 139:1-24

I find Psalm 139 humbling. Its message is absolutely precious. And there's no doubt in my mind after reading it that no one knows and understands me like God. That got me thinking. Do I treat God like the awesome God and Father He is? Do I respond to Him with complete trust and love? My honest answer...sometimes. Now that's painful and a little embarrassing to write down because I really wanted to tell you "Oh, yes, my relationship with God is outstanding." Well, it is what it is, and I can't go back and change how I responded yesterday, last month, five years ago. But, I can respond differently today and going forward.

So think about where you're at with God when it comes to things like trust, love, openness, etc. What are some specific actions you can take to move even closer to Him? Based on Psalm 139, how did you think wants you to respond to Him? Tami W.

"You (E)hem me in, behind and before,
and (F)lay your hand upon me.
6 (G)Such knowledge is (H)too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it."

Can there be any more comfort needed, or found, in the verses that talk about being in His hand? What a wonderful analogy!

When we think we're alright where we are in our communion with the One True God Almighty in heaven, it's a sure sign we need to recommit our hearts to the Lord.

Matt 7:21

Grace and Peace

I was thinking as I read this passage how some will read Psalm 139 and interpret it exclusively as "you can't hide from God; He always sees," but I read it and see, "This world and all it throws at me can't hide me from God; He always sees!"

Like I believe we all are, I'm constantly learning to trust, love, and obey God. In recent days, He's begun to stretch me in some areas that have sat on the back burner of my life for a long time, which He now, for whatever His reasons are, has chosen to bring closer to the forefront. I'm learning to trust Him in these things, too--in helping me understand, process, and deal with the thoughts and emotions that I'm experiencing as things that haven't moved within my heart and mind in years shake off the rust. His reasoning is right, and His ways are best, so I trust Him to help me as He guides me along this path.

It just shows me that God planned and thought out each one of us before we were born.It is just an amazing feeling to know that God knows my every need.And that he is with me every step of the way through my good and bad and there has been plenty of bad. praise God.

I don't usually make New Years promises, but this year it was to read Psalm 139 every day!! The last 2 verses are my prayer. Search me O God and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me and lead me in the way everlasting!
The last 3-4 days I have been 'running' ahead of God's plans instead of letting Him lead. He made it very clear this morning that He is in control and I shouldn't be working so hard to plan and do things my way. What a wonderful God He is. He will provide all that is needed when it is needed.
