Psalm 139, Beauty And Blessing

Psalm 139 is incredibly moving because it underscores the very personal nature of God. Yes, the Lord’s knowledge is vast. Yes, His power is great. But how often do we stop and reflect upon God’s genuine longing to forge a relationship with humanity? God watches over us, which is born out of tremendous affection and love. In fact, David described this divine watchfulness as something that he could not escape even if he wanted to. The point being, God is so good, so kind, so loving, and so merciful. Therefore, why would you even want to flee from such a fulfilling and meaningful expression of love? God knows us inside and out. He knows our comings and goings. He knows everything about us. And the fact that the Lord can so beautifully adore us reveals how blessed we really are.

Psalm 139:7, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (NIV)

One thought on “Psalm 139, Beauty And Blessing”

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I do wish you would make the font a little larger; easier to read. I love this Psalm. I set major verses from it to music, which God inspired. Its titled Even The Darkness, ( is not dark to Thee, for even darkness is as Light with Thee.” I played it on the piano and sang it for my grandmother the year before she died and tears ran down her face. She is the one who taught me to play piano, and she is also the one who taught me the Bible. She said the song was beautiful. I wish I knew how to get stuff published.
    “If I take the wings of the morning, or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea—even there, even there, Thy hand shall lead me.” Blessed be the Lord God our Father.
