Our God is Near


Dear friends.

Today I have some words on my heart. Words that are not quite ready to meet the blogger world. But could you pray for me as I process some things today? Could you pray that God’s peace is evident in my life? I’m definitely in need of a good dose of peace right now. For today, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Psalms. It’s one that I memorized way back in High School. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned to this Psalm for comfort. It’s a Psalm that always reminds me of how near our God is, and how intricate His plan for our lives truly is:

LORD, You have searched me and known me.

You know when I sit down and when I stand up;
You understand my thoughts from far away.

You observe my travels and my rest;
You are aware of all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue,
You know all about it, LORD.

You have encircled me;
You have placed Your hand on me.

[This] extraordinary knowledge is beyond me.
It is lofty; I am unable to [reach] it.

Where can I go to escape Your Spirit?
Where can I flee from Your presence?

If I go up to heaven, You are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, You are there.

If I live at the eastern horizon
[or] settle at the western limits,

even there Your hand will lead me;
Your right hand will hold on to me.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me,
and the light around me will become night"—

even the darkness is not dark to You.
The night shines like the day;
darkness and light are alike to You.

For it was You who created my inward parts;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.

I will praise You,
because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful,
and I know [this] very well.

My bones were not hidden from You
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all [my] days were written in Your book and planned
before a single one of them began.

God, how difficult Your thoughts are
for me [to comprehend]; how vast their sum is!

If I counted them,

they would outnumber the grains of sand;

when I wake up, [f] I am still with You.

Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my concerns.

See if there is any offensive way in me;
lead me in the everlasting way.

(Psalm 139:1-18, 22-23, HCSB)
