You know me
Psalm 139:1-6 – You have searched me, Lord, 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.
I remember hearing this verse in Sunday School when I was younger. I was so fascinated by the fact that God could really know me. I mean, how can He know me inside out, and you? And everyone else in the world? How?! It’s unrealistic. It’s impossible.
This alone makes Him higher than us. The fact that He formed each of us, fearfully and wonderfully. He spent time making us and knowing us.
He knows our bad habits. He knows the bad thoughts we have. He knows when we’re frustrated or annoyed. He knows when we’re disappointed and sad. He knows when we’re doubting and He knows when we’re struggling. He knows when we’re joyful. He knows when we fall in love. He knows when we feel encouraged, and when we feel motivated. He knows your strengths and your weaknesses.
He knows your past and He knows your future. He knows you better than your closest friend or your other half. He knows you better than you know yourself. He knows you and He’s always close to you. You aren’t hidden, you aren’t alone and you aren’t too far away.
The King of Heaven, the Lord of Lords, the Creator of the universe, the Holy one, knows you and He still wants you.
