His word…to us

Standard

My Dad sent this to us today, great timing as I am feeling really down today (more on that tomorrow).

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
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, 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.

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.

(Psalm 139 minus verses 19 to 22)

After reading our recent post, Dad (who is a minister in the church) felt this was meant for us.  We will be spending time absorbing this and praying on this for God’s revelation through it.

  1. Dad somehow always knows what we need and to absorb these wonderful words is just right. I know our Lord and Saviour will reveal all to you soon. I have again placed you both in His arms and care.and will continue to do so each day. Waiting on our Lord’s word is what we have to do. I love you lots my Boo!

  2. These are absolutely my favourite words from the Bible – just meditating on them will be balm for your souls.
    On Sunday night our minister preached a wonderful sermon from Job – very different to what we normally hear. I wish you had been there as it was so relevant. Some of the points he made were
    -God does not treat us fairly (as you can imagine that had us all sitting up veeery quickly!) No, He treats us even better than fairly.
    -We need to be faithful in our suffering – sometimes that is the hardest hey? Job wasn’t yet God still came through for him.
    -He is the High Priest who suffers with us – Hallelujah!
    -And we need to allow God to be God

    I pray extra strength for you both today
