God is with Us

11 Jul

1O Lord, you have searched me and known me.
2You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away.
3You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
4Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely.
5You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it.
7Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence?
8If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
9If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
10even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.
11If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,”
12even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.
(Psalm 139:1-12, NRSV)

When someone really knows us they get us. They know what is happening even if we don’t tell them. They know our emotions and what we are dealing with even when we don’t talk about it.

They can sense when things are going wrong and will be there to help.

Now imagine someone who knows you better than you know yourself. God knows everything about you and even why you do the things you don’t know you do.

God has searched you and knows you and loves you despite all of that and will always be your greatest cheerleader and always there for you.
