verses 13 and 14
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s
womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made. Marvelous are Your works. And that my soul knows very well.
verses 15 – 18
My frame was not hidden from You. When I was made in secret and
skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my
substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were
written. The days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of
them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When
I awake, I am still with You.
verses 23- and 24
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties: And
see if there is any wicked way in me. And lead me in the way everlasting.
The Psalmist, in the verses of Psalm 139, is magnifying the Lord! David is
thoroughly overwhelmed by the magnificence fo the Lord! He is counting
the ways in which God is so far above him! He is exclaiming the unsurpassed
works and ways of the Lord! I have enumerated them as follows:
~ God is always with us. We cannot run from Him.
~God knows our thoughts and the path we take.
~God’s presence is continually around us.
~God makes the light shine through the darkness.
~God creates the miraculous birthing process beginning from the sperm’s union with the egg.
~ God forms every cell and blood vessel and all our body systems in the womb and causes them to function, in utero and after birth.
~ God continually thinks about us.
~ God knows our fears and angst.
~God knows if we are following His leading in our lives.
Thank You for creating the heavens and earth. Thank You for creating us in Your image. The wisdom of Your ways is perfect, dear Father and we thank You for leading us in Your path of righteousness.
We praise You for thinking of us and caring for us and loving us. Thank you for Your mercy, kindness and grace. You are all we need! You are our Awesome God! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
