Psalm 139:1-6 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


How does God know what’s going on inside us?  In our passage from the Psalter, we are reminded that God looks in our hearts; He knows our desires.  God knows our thoughts; he discovers them from heaven.  God knows what we are going to say before we even open our mouths.  Yikes!  That thought comforts me and startles me all at the same time.  God knows me.


Psalm 139:1-6  The Lord Is Always Near

You have looked deep

into my heart, Lord,

    and you know all about me.

You know when I am resting

    or when I am working,

    and from heaven

    you discover my thoughts.

You notice everything I do

    and everywhere I go.

Before I even speak a word,

    you know what I will say,

and with your powerful arm

    you protect me

    from every side.

I can’t understand all of this!

    Such wonderful knowledge

    is far above me.


Prayer:  Lord, your ways are so full of love, I don’t understand the extreme depth of your devotion to see me victorious in every area of my life.  I don’t understand it, but I am so very grateful for your love.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
