Psalms 139 O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar...
I find Psalm 139 humbling. Its message is absolutely precious. And there's no doubt in my mind after reading it that no one knows and understands me like God. That got me thinking. Do I treat God like the awesome God and Father He is? Do I respond to Him with complete trust and love? My honest answer...sometimes. Now that's painful and a little embarrassing to write down because I really wanted to tell you "Oh, yes, my relationship with God is outstanding." Well, it is what it is, and I can't go back and change how I responded yesterday, last month, five years ago. But, I can respond differently today and going forward.
So think about where you're at with God when it comes to things like trust, love, openness, etc. What are some specific actions you can take to move even closer to Him? Based on Psalm 139, how did you think wants you to respond to Him? Tami W.
