Fearfully and wonderfully made!

Scripture reading for June 29: Psalm 135-139

God knows us better than we realize!  He has searched us out from before the foundation of the world! (Ephesians 1:4)  He knows where we are right now and what we are thinking about.  He knows our hopes, joys, fears, and dreams.  He is familiar with our ways and knows what we will say before we say it!  (Psalm 139:1-4)  Although He knows the dirt in our life, he still loves us.

This knowledge was beyond the psalmist’s ability to understand and know.  It made him think about hiding from God.  Adam and Eve tried that but God found them anyway! Jonah tried that and boarded a ship to Tarsus.  God located Jonah in the belly of the fish; trying to hide did not work for him either.  There is no place we can go where God is not!  (Psalm 139:7-12) 

We were knit together in our mother’s womb!  Each person comes from DNA which are strands of protein containing a code that spells out exactly who we are.  These strands are twisted together in precise order and sequence like a woman’s knitting!  Over a billion connections must be made from two strands of DNA, half from the mother, half from the father!  We are fearfully and wonderfully made!  (Psalm 139:16)

God thinks about us all the time!  He has wonderful thoughts about His children that He has formed!  These thoughts are precious to the Psalmist and us today!  They are so numerous that if we could number the grains of sand, God’s thoughts are more!

The psalm concludes with the psalmist asking God to slay the wicked!  The psalmist hated those that hated God!  He counted them as his enemy!  He concluded by asking God to search him again and test him.  He needed God’s help to know if there was any offensive way in his heart. Take a moment and seek the Lord with the understanding that this psalm gives!  Listen for some of those thoughts that God has towards you!  God bless you today!

“Search me, O 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
