God’s Complete Knowledge and Care

God's Complete Knowledge and Care

Psalms 139: 1-24 says,
“Lord, you have examined me and know me.
You know everything I do; from far away you understand all my thoughts.
You see me whether I am working or resting; you know all my actions.
Even before I speak, you already know what I will say.
You are all around me on every side; you protect me with your power.
Your knowledge of me is too deep; it is beyond my understanding.

Where could I go to escape from you?
Where could I get away from your presence?
If I went up to heaven, you would be there;
If I lay down in the world of the dead, you would be there.
If I flew away beyond the east or lived in the farthest place in the west, you would be there to lead me, you would be there to help me.
I could ask the darkness to hide me or the light around me to turn into night, but even darkness is not for you, and the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.

You created every part of me;
you put me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because you are to be feared;
all you do is strange and wonderful.
I know it with all my heart.
When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother’s womb,
when I was growing there in the secret,
you knew that I was there–
you saw me before I was born.
The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book, before any of them ever began.
O, God, how difficult I find your thoughts;
how many of them there are!
If I counted them, they would be more than grains of sand.
When I awake, I am still with you.

O God, how I wish you would kill the wicked!
How I wish violent people would leave me alone!
They say wicked things about you;
they speak evil things about you;
they speak evil things against your name.
O Lord, how I hate those who hate you!
How I despise those who rebel against you!
I hate them with a total hatred;
I regard them as enemies.

Examine me, O God, and know my mind;
test me, and discover my thoughts.
Find out if there is any evil in me and guide me in the everlasting way.



  1. Reblogged this on set your paths straight and commented:
    Reblogged from thedreamyactiveinertbrain. This is among the most beautiful scriptures God gives us….it is sweet reminder of how intimate our relationship is with Him and how precious His creation is to Him. How can we, as walking breathing human beings not desire a God who so lovingly pursues us? As it is His will that none should be snatched away…JOHN 10:28. He is there, waiting for all of us, to say Yes God, I believe….

  2. Reblogged this, this is one of those scriptures that catches hold of me, and literally makes me weep with the humble understanding of how much He loves us. A most excellent way to start the day and end the work week. Thanks also for my reblog as well. Have a most excellent day!

    • I just finished reading the whole book of Psalms today and yes I feel the same way. While reading the remaining chapters, I was caught by it. The whole chapter (Psalms 139) seems to be our own words towards our living and just God —totally nothing to hide from Him. We’re so helpless without Him, hence we’re totally dependent on His grace. Thanks and blessings!
