Hear The Word Of God

11-28-21 HEAR GOD’S WORD

Psalm 139: 1-14, 23-24 (TPT):

“Lord, You know everything there is to know about me.

You perceive every movement of my heart and soul,

and You understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.

You are so intimately aware of me, Lord.

You read my heart like an open book

and You know all the words I’m about to speak

before I even start a sentence!

You know every step I will take before my journey even begins.

You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,

and in kindness You follow behind me

to spare me from the harm of my past.

You have laid Your hand on me!

This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible!

Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength.

Where could I go from Your Spirit?

Where could I run and hide from Your face?

If I go up to heaven, You’re there!

If I go down to the realm of the dead, You’re there too!

If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, You’re there!

If I fly into the radiant sunset, You’re there waiting!

Wherever I go, Your hand will guide me;

Your strength will empower me.

It’s impossible to disappear from You

or to ask the darkness to hide me,

for Your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.

There is no such thing as darkness with You.

The night, to You, is as bright as the day;

there’s no difference between the two.

You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside

and my intricate outside,

and wove them all together in my mother’s womb.

I thank You, God, for making me so mysteriously complex!

Everything You do is marvelously breathtaking.

It simply amazes me to think about it!

How thoroughly You know me, Lord!

God, I invite Your searching gaze into my heart.

Examine me through and through;

find out everything that may be hidden within me.

Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.

See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on,

and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting way—

the path that brings me back to You.”
