“O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.” -
Psalm 139 is a
personal prayer and
song of praise to God. Though Author and Creator of the entire
universe and each of us, God is personally in touch with every
single one of our lives! He cares deeply and compassionately for
us, not only as a whole but individually. This psalm is a
magnificent exposition of the greatness and goodness of God, as
it focuses on His relationship with an individual.
Because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross
and resurrection from the dead, we are able to come freely to
God through Christ. In prayer, praise, and everyday life, He is
our constant companion. Jesus calls us friends. What a God we
serve! A God who saves! A good God who knows us, loves us, and
will never leave us alone. Thankfully captured by His grace.
