Living the Psalms, Psalm 139
If you are faithful to the Lord, this Psalm will encourage you. If you are trying to hide from the Lord, this Psalm will make you realize you are fighting a losing battle.
He Knows What You Do (1-6). He knows you personally and intimately. You can’t hide from Him or fool Him be open and honest with God. And watch Him work in your life. His eye is upon you (Psalm 32:8).
He Knows Where You Go (7-12). Sinners try to hide from God, but believers hide in God. (Hebrews 13:5).
He Knows What You Are (13-16). He made you , Planned your future, numbered your days. He knows what is best for you. Accept what you are as His gift to you and then use it wisely as your gift back to Him.
He Knows What You Think (17-18). The Psalmist thought how wonderful it was for the almighty to think about him, he realized he could not number the thoughts of God, and he meditated on these things (Philippians 4:8).
He Knows What You Love (19-22). Take these words to heart: Love not the world nor the things of the World (1 John 2:15-17).
He Knows What You Desire (23-24). You do not know your own heart as well as you might think (Jeremiah 17:9-10).
Let God Search your heart and deal with the things that make you anxious (Matthew 6:33).
