Think About This Today

How do you feel today? Are you anxious, tired, fearful for your job or you marriage or your kids? Are you disappointed? Discouraged? In financial trouble? Emotionally devastated? Feeling hopeless? Unworthy? Unaccepted? Lonely?

God has a prescription for you that He guarantees will make you feel better. God prescribes that we read Psalms 139 and call on Him any time. We cannot fathom the depths of God’s love for ALL of us. But, David came as close as any human could when he wrote this Psalm.

Read it, chew it up and swallow it. Digest every line, every promise God makes to us, and every way He tells us that He loves us.

Lord, You have searched me and You know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
You are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
You know it completely, O Lord.

You hem me in, behind and before;
You have laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to explain.

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 O 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.

Search me O God, and know my heart
test me  and know my anxious thought.
See if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Feeling better? Not yet? Read Psalm 139 over again and pray that God will show you His heart for you.

  1. This is one of my favorite verses. I’ve prayed that last part many times, ” Test me and know my anxious thoughts…” It always helps me. Thanks for sharing it. I needed to be reminded of that today. God bless you:)
