For He Himself has said: "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
Psalm 139 has been for me a source of encouragement and strength. God had such a beautiful way of bringing it to my attention. I was listening to an interview on the 700 Club and heard one of the verses mentioned. When I investigated, I realized that that was just one verse and that, in fact, almost the entire Psalm just ministered to me. It speaks of how much God is indeed in control. We can't even hide from God: whether we ascend into heaven or make our bed in hell, God is there! Whether we like it or not we cannot escape His Presence. And to me that is a source of comfort because no matter where I am, no matter how far I may feel from God, He is there! And He is not just there, existing, He is there offering guidance, support and strength (v 10).
Imagine, every day of my life He has recorded! (v 16b) There is nothing I do or that happens to me that can shock Him or throw Him off guard. He knows what I am going to say before I say it, what I am going to do before I do it. How awesome it is to serve a God that knows so much and can have my back at all times!
How awesome it is to know and serve a God that knows my beginning, my end and my in between! How awesome it is to serve a God who took the time to create every detail of my body, inside out; who took the time to create something so beautiful! (v 13 - 15)
Finally, how awesome it is to serve a God who is able to help me be all He wants me to be. The Psalmist says: "Search me, O God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life." (v 23 -24 NLT) I don't have to do it myself, He is there and well able to help.
