fearfully made"He is intimately aquainted with all my ways."  Psalm 139:3

Psalm 139 reflects David’s prayerful meditation of God’s omnipresence and omniscience.  This is, perhaps, my favorite Psalm; it causes me to feel safe and special.  Omnipresence means God is everywhere simultaneously.  Omniscience means that God is all-knowing; His knowledge is unlimited.

“For you created my utmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (vs. 13)  Nothing about us is accidental.  We are crafted personally and purposefully.  He knows our words before we let them exit out mouths (vs. 4).

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (vs. 14)  Every talent, gift, and occupation has a place in the kingdom of God.  He is the potter and we are the clay.  We each have a marked and distinguished plan and have been set aside for this commission.

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all of the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (vs. 16)  He has numbered our days, and nothing can change His plan for our lives.  Whatever the Lord pleases, He does.  One of the biggest tricks and deceits of our enemy is to convince us that we are alone.  “You have enclosed me behind and before; such knowledge is too wonderful for me.” (vs. 5)  Psalm 139 creates gratitude and praise, especially in times of hardship, injustice, and pain.

Loving Our Creator,
