I was so blessed this evening with this portion of scripture below and this beautiful song by Maryanne J George from Maverick City Worship kept playing in my head that I thought I should share it with you too… Indeed God is Such an Awesome God!
If you don’t know Him today, know that God knows you… He knows who you are, He knows where you are from and where you are headed. He knows you by your name and He calls you friend. Always remember that you are loved, you are valued and you are treasured by Him. He created you, formed you and He knitted you together. You are significant to Him.
No matter what you are going through today remember nothing you have done or are can ever stop Jesus from loving you… The world will forsake you but the love and mercy of the Lord is upon you and He will never give up on you…
Psalms 139:1-18, 23-24 NIV
“You have searched me, Lord , and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord , know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you. Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
