Of all the Psalms the 139th is my 2nd favorite. Wherever we are, we are under the eyes and hands of God. God knows all things, as He is omniscient. He everywhere, as He is omnipresent. These truths are laid out by David in this Psalm. I have written my personal version of it. I pray it is a blessing to you.
Every thought I have Lord, You know it. You have perfect knowledge of me. From the most obvious, to the darkest secrets – You know them all. My life is an open book before You. Even from Heaven, You know even my most intimate thoughts. There is nothing that I can hide from you.
You know when I walk out the door and when I get back home; You are with me every step of the way. You know everything I’m going to say before the first word leaves my lips; Your Spirit helps me choose my words wisely.
I turn and look behind me, and You’re there; if I look ahead of me, You’re there too. I feel Your comforting presence coming and going. Your Spirit helps guide my each and every step. The wonder of Your grace consumes me, I am engulfed by Your love – I can’t take it all in.
Everywhere I go Your Spirit is with me. If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I go to the center of the earth, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the light of the day and land on foreign soil across the world, You are already there waiting to guide me, and hold me fast.
Even in the darkest of nights, Your light shines about me. Night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to You.
You created my innermost being; Your hands formed me in my mother’s womb. Your love takes my breath away and I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; I worship You, adore You, and thank You for creating me in Your image.
You know me inside and out, from the hairs on my head to every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit. You sculpted me from nothing into something. Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You. You were there when I shed my first tear, and You will be there as I breathe my last breath. You knew the course of my life before I’d even lived one day.
Your thoughts are wonderful and beautiful my God, engulfing my soul. The depth of your thoughts I’ll never comprehend. I couldn’t even begin to count them any more than I could count the sands of the sea. I find myself lost and found at the same time in Your presence. Let me rise in the morning and be with You always.
Search me, God, and know me; cross-examine my mind, analyze my heart, and investigate my thoughts to see if there is anything offensive to You in me, so that I may humble myself before You, be immersed in Your grace and be with You for eternity when my days are done.
