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.
Promise #308: I know everything about you and am mindful of all your ways.
Have you ever walked into a room full of people yet felt completely alone? I believe that we can be surrounded by many people in our day to day lives yet still carry a sense of loneliness in the depths of our soul. The reason we feel this way is because we are all looking for a deeper, more profound interaction with people than just surface conversation. We want to truly know people and have them know us.
A professional counselor can get to 'know' a lot of people in their practice, yet still not be known by anyone themselves. I believe the cry of the human heart is that someone would know us through and through yet still accept us the way we are. In today's promise from Psalm 139:1-3, King David makes the declaration that God knows everything about him and is familiar with all his ways.
The same holds true for you. God knows everything about you. He has even numbered each hair on your head. He understands what makes you tick and as a loving father is filled with compassion towards his children... so His heart is moved with compassion toward you! (Psalm 103:13-14) You are never alone because God is with you. He is close to you and understands you more than you understand yourself.
May this revelation go deep into our hearts today so that we will never, ever feel alone again. He knows everything about us and yet He still loves us with all His heart! Photo by Eric Boldt
