#GodChicks Day 19: Never leave us!

Scripture:


Psalm 139:1-6


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.

Observation:

You search every part of me, Lord, and you know who I am. You know everything about me, even when I sit or when I stand. You know my inner most thoughts. You know when I leave and when I return, you know all my ways. You know what I’m going to say before it comes from my mouth, you know me completely. You are behind me and ahead of me. Your reassuring presence comes with me wherever I go. You are too wonderful and knowledgeable for me to understand or imagine.

Application:

Perhaps there have been times in your life when you wish God wasn’t watching. Maybe you have tried to hide from him. But for the most part, we are glad that we are never out of God’s sight. God knows all the stages of our lives. He will be with you through whatever; a job interview, marriage, birth of a child, graduation, etc… You are never out of his sight!”

There are so many times that I have tried to hide from God. My actions, choices and behavior were not what I wanted God to be a part of. However, the truth is that it is impossible to hide from him. He is all knowing and all seeing. Then there are times when I know that he is right beside, ahead or behind me and I am so grateful for it. There are also times when I don’t feel him near but have to trust his word and have faith that he is. Regardless of my feelings toward it He is always there and is reaching out for us. I am so thankful that he never turns his back on us. That he is just like the father of the prodigal son. He is always looking for us to return to him and when we do he lovingly forgives us and welcomes us back as his child. There is nothing that we can do to separate us form his love for us!

Daily Step:

Describe the stage of life you are in. thank God for being with you in the middle of this stage.

Prayer:

Lord, I thank you for your loving guidance and faithfulness. I thank you for your constant companionship and forgiveness. Help me to rely and trust on your love. Amen
