O LORD, you have searched me and known me! Psalm 139:1
O LORD, you have examined me and understand me deeply.
You know my highs and my lows.
You see my rest and my works.
My rest is in You.
My works are Your works, prepared from before the foundations of the world.
You knew that You would empower me to climb the Great Wall six months after You healed me.
You know my thoughts and my words before I know them.
The Holy Spirit prays for me when words escape me.
You protect me and lead me.
You protected my body in the car crash.
I don’t know myself, but You know me. My thoughts are not Your thoughts.
I don’t understand why I do what I don’t want to do, but You know.
You are with me in my failure and in my success; in my despair and in my joy.
When I get my eyes off You, You lead me back to Your joy.
You wrapped me in eternity.
Before I was born, You formed the works that You equipped me to accomplish.
For You created me and declared Your creation very good.
Before the foundation of the world, You formed experiences to shape me into the woman You prepared me to be.
Before the foundation of the world, You knew me and gave Your own dear Son as my Redeemer.
Lord, the earth is in birth pangs, but You are in control.
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. Psalm 139:23-24
As I pray the Scriptures, I learn about God, and I learn about myself. God is the Lord and is on His throne. As the world swirls around us, please take time to think about how God has worked in your life and acknowledge that before Him.
Father, You are our Creator, our Guide, our Protector, our King. Examine us and teach what we need to know and lead us in Your way. We love You, Lord and praise You for knowing us so intimately and still loving us. Like David, such knowledge and love is too high for us. We praise You! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
