Verses 1-6


In the first 6 verses


David expresses

the wonder

of God's LOVE

-

God wants us to read these verses and

feel

LOVED!


O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.

3 You comprehend 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, O Lord, You know it altogether.

5 You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.

NKJV



I invite you to join me and

Think about His

LOVE.



Let's think often about his LOVE.


I urge you to:

Remind yourself of his

Spectacular

Love

for

YOU!




Verses 7-12


In verses 7 - 12

David

expounds

about

the omni-present

ability of

of God.


God is always with us.


God is always watching over us.


God wants us to read the following verses

and have feelings of

SECURITY.


Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?


8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.


If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,


10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.


11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;


12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.



I urge you to allow the Lord

to bring you

feelings of security.


AND

I urge you to allow the Lord

to

ASTONISH

you with his LOVE.



Romans 8:38-39

says that nothing can separate us

from the love of God:


 For I am persuaded,

that neither death, nor life,

nor angels, nor principalities,

nor powers,

nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth,

nor any other creature,

shall be able to separate us from

the love of God,

which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

KJV


Verses 13-16



In verses 13 - 16

David explains how

lovingly

God made us.

-

God wants us to read the following verses

and feel

VALUABLE

to God

and

TREASURED

by God.


13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.


14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.


15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.


16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.




Verses 17 - 18

that God thinks about us

all the time!

feel

IMPORTANT!


17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!


18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.



God is omniscient

so

he knows everything about me.


God lovingly watches me

as I move through each of my days.


Verses 19-22



In verses 19 - 22


God wants us to know that

we are protected from our

enemies.


~


God wants us to

feel

PROTECTED.


19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.

20 For they speak against You wickedly;
Your enemies take Your name in vain.


God is omnipotent

which means he is all powerful.


God teaches us to ask him for bold things.



God teaches us to ask him

to protect us from evil.


~


God is grooming us to

stand

like a Champion

against evil.


~


We are learning to

speak

confidently

and

walk

courageously.



21 Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred;
I count them my enemies.


We are to hate (meaning: constantly oppose) evil.


And

Ephesians 6:12

reveals

who

our enemies

are.


They are demonic spiritual forces

not people.

Try me, and know my anxieties;


24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.


Father God,

Search me and know my heart.

Whenever you see wickedness in
my mind or my heart,
guide me away from it.

So that

I can be more like you

and

so I can experience

more of your freedom.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen

Songs of Dedication to God


Lord,

I want to obey you.






Yes, Lord,

I want to serve you.



Power Proclamations:


I won't let the past hinder me.

I will get up when I fall down.

I will keep my heart tender toward God.




As we ponder Psalm 139,

we more easily

YIELD

to God

and allow

TRUST and FAITH

to grow in us

and allow

STRENGTH

to rise up in us.






Lord of my Heart,

If you will only help me

to want your will,

then I will follow your laws even more closely.

Amen
