This was on my mind today and I wanted to share it with everyone. It is one of my favorite Psalms. How amazing it is to come to the understanding that our God knows every detail about us. He hand crafted us and made us perfect. It is hard to wrap my mind around such knowledge!!
I disapprove of myself a lot about being overweight, having a perfectly round face, not being as tall as I would like to be and having poker straight hair!! Actually, that list could be miles longer. However, I know that I need to start praising Jesus for all those things instead of complaining. How can I possibly tell God that I don’t like his design plan? Umm….not gonna do it! I am a one-of-a-kind constructed by God himself! We all are! How could I possibly complain? I need to surrender to my Father and let him banish those ugly, worldly scrutinies.
I pray that He will search me and fill me with so much love that there is no room for anything negative. That is one reason I love this Psalm. Whether you have read it a thousand times or this is the first time…it will uplift you.
Have a blessed day! Remember, when you are feeling negative about yourself…you are a child of God. Perfectly and purposefully created!! That should make you feel unstoppable!! So, go let your light shine…there is not another like it in all the world…
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
