He Knows

Greetings and Holykisses,



Psalm 139
You have searched me, LORD,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, LORD, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.

If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
Do I not hate those who hate you, LORD,
and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Lea,
This is my favorite Psalm
I have it memorized, and often it comes to mind as a reminder of God's love and care and knowing of His creation.

You have probably seen my Ps139 jars. It is verses 17 and 18, about how He thinks of us more than there are grains of sand. It has been a wonderful way of opening up doors to share God's love at my store.

Thanks for posting it.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

What a comfort to read those words... Our path is saturated with HIM.... HE has gone before, HE follows us behind.....If we turn our gaze to the left we see HIM there.. and if we turn to the right, HE is there.....

Never leaves, never forsakes, never forgets, never turns from us, never angry, always the Father.... Guiding and loving and yes sometimes chastises...... But that is ok...... because it just proves HE loves us......

Just what I needed to read.

"Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days
ordained for me were written in your book"

God bless you friend,
Michele

You posted this Just For Me Didn't You? :o)

The Lord is awesome. I know Psalm 139, ( I don't have it memorized, but I've read
it, but for some reason I feel like I really
need to spend time soaking it in. I'm so happy you posted it.

"you knit me together in my mother’s womb."

Our God is so amazing.
God bless You Lea,
Michele
