1 Yahweh, you have searched me, and you know me. 2 You know my sitting down and my rising up. You perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word on my tongue, but, behold, Yahweh, you know it altogether. 5 You hem me in behind and before. You laid your hand on me. 6 This knowledge is beyond me. It’s lofty. I can’t attain it. (WEB)
It is amazing to think that the God of the heavens and the earth is so familiar with all that He has created. He knows everything about us and He loves us with all His heart! He knows when we sleep, He knows when we wake up, and He knows what we will say before we even say it.
In today's Scripture passage, King David even says that God hemmed him on all sides! Our God and Father is closer to each one of us than we could possibly imagine. Jesus told us that our Heavenly Father knows what we need even before we ask for it.
If you are feeling alone and separated from God right now, my prayer today is that you would know that He is closer to you than you could possibly hope for or imagine. I pray that the reality and the nearness of His presence would overwhelm your heart today.
24 The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn’t dwell in temples made with hands, 25 neither is he served by men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. 26 He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons, and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live, and move, and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his offspring.’ (WEB)
