God knows everything about me, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Psalm 139

20 01 2011

God knows everything about me, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

God still loves me. God doesn’t give up on me. God doesn’t turn away from me. God doesn’t backhand me.

God thinks about me. God still loves me.

Nothing I do or say surprises, my Creator God. God knew me when I was an unborn baby. God knew me when I threw rocks. God knew me when I fell and broke a wrist. God knew me when life dumped on me.

God knows you. God knew how you felt when you lost that job. God cried with you when you lost that relationship. There is nothing you have done or said that God doesn’t know. God loves. God forgives. God is right there with you.

You see, I have found that God will exchange my junk for perfect peace. When I talk to God straight, honest, and without faking it, God listens and He answers.

The inspired words of the Bible help me hear the heartbeat of God. The human writers, who penned God’s thoughts, help me see that I can be forgiven.

So, during this time of prayer, I ask God to search me and pour out anything that offends Him. I ask God to lead me along the path of everlasting life.

Read this and you will see what I mean:

Psalm 139

1 O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

3 You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave,t you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.

11 I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—

12 but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.

16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

17 How precious are your thoughts about me,t O God.
They cannot be numbered!

18 I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!

19 O God, if only you would destroy the wicked!
Get out of my life, you murderers!

20 They blaspheme you;
your enemies misuse your name.

21 O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you?
Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?

22 Yes, I hate them with total hatred,
for your enemies are my enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
