O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 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 attain. Psalm 139:1-6 (NIV)
You Know Me
I can hardly believe it. It is so fantastic that it is almost beyond belief. Yet, I know without a doubt that it is true. Nothing could be better news!!! What can you hardly believe? What is so fantastic? What do you know without a doubt? What news could not be better? Obviously, you know exactly what I am talking about. Yes, I do. That does not mean I won’t take great delight in hearing the thoughts that are in your heart and on your mind. Well, if I can bring you delight that is exactly what I would like to do with all that is within me. So, here are the thoughts that are in my heart and on my mind. You know me. You don’t know me just a little bit. You know me intimately. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know my words before I speak them. You know my actions before I take them. You know me better than I know myself. Nothing about my thoughts or words or actions is hidden from you. You know everything about my life from before it began and right up until it’s final day on this earth. You have been with me on each and every day. You have seen my setbacks and sins. You have seen my discouragement and defeats. You have seen my successes and triumphs. You have been with me through every twist and turn and up and down of my life. You have never left me. You have lifted me up when I have fallen. You have comforted me when I have been broken. You have held on to me as I have held on to you. Most importantly, you have drawn me back whenever I have wandered away from you. You have turned my life around. You have rescued me from a life without you. You have forgiven my sins and cleansed my unrighteousness. Your hand has been on me. You have been guiding and guarding and blessing my life. You have a secured a place for me in heaven. One day I will come to live forever with you. You have done all of these things for me in spite of the fact that you know everything about me. I am so unworthy. I am so undeserving. I am so thankful. I am so grateful. You are so good to me. I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength! I love you with all that is within me! You are my Savior and Lord! Yes, I have done all these things for you. Yes, I am your Savior and Lord. Yes, I take great delight in you. You are my child. My hand is on you. My favor rests on you. I know you intimately and I love you deeply. Thank you, Heavenly Father.
Heavenly Father, you know my thoughts before I think them, words before I speak them and actions before I take them. Thank you for knowing, loving and caring for me. Thank you for guarding, guiding and blessing my life. I am thankful your hand is on me. Amen
