Reading:  Psalm 139:1-2

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.


What peace I find in the fact that God knows. Nothing about me surprises Him. Nothing is hidden from His sight. He hears the faintest whisper of my heart. He moves in the shadows of my thoughts. He is witness to the birthing of my desires. He counts my tears. He hears my prayer. He sees what I see, and what I cannot. He hears every beat of my heart. Since conception, He has never taken His eyes off of me … not for a single moment. Born to sin, by blood He bought me. Born to die, in Him I live.

In my darkness, He did not lose sight of me – not for a second. God knows! Except for grace, it is a terrifying thought. He witnessed my most shameful moment. He heard my cursing, saw my greed, felt my indifference, endured my ignorance, suffered my rebellion, outlasted my resistance, exceeded my hopes, and fulfilled my dreams. He knows my tomorrow, helps in trouble, leads by example, loves beyond measure, lifts me in sorrow, fills me with power, and hides me in the hollow of His hand.

I have known His rebuke, conviction, correction, affirmation, pleasure, provision, guidance, and peace. He knows me, and somehow, He loves me.
Such love demands my heart and inspires my soul.
