I have never read Psalms 139 in its entirety until last night. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever come across. I had a really rough evening on yesterday, I’m not sure why I was not (and even still) I am not sure what had triggered my attitude LOL but Lord knows …. Literally the Lord knew I had one.
I took it God in prayer and I laid it at the feet of Jesus and even in prayer I begin to ask God that if I never grow into a “gift” if I never grow to the “fullness” He has called me to please do not take away our relationship. I pleaded with God, that no matter where I go in life do not let me forget.
I prayed and I told God do not perfect or cultivate another gift until my relationship is right and pleasing unto Him. Do not give me another word until my relationship is right with Him.
Relationship is most important, over the offices over the gifts and destinies and purposes. Relationship is more important than what God holds in His hand.
The bible tells us that many have called out “Lord, Lord” and many prophesied in His name and drove out demons and performed miracles but were never known.
I told God, “I want to be known by you”.
So after I had finished, I hopped up and ran to my bible LOL …. I stumbled upon Psalms 139 and I read it and felt so much peace in my heart and spirit.
So, here I am sharing it with you all. I do not do this to boast as I normally do not like sharing things like this but I do this to encourage you and show you that God is concerned about His children and the affairs and going on’s with His children. He is faithful and just to reply and to confirm you in any situation.
I also do this in hopes that this will excite you to seek the Lord and find out how He speaks to you, that in seeking Him you will find out what that good perfect and acceptable will is for your life and those around you.
Know that God is concerned and He does care for you.
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
