You Know it Altogether
The first Scripture I'm memorising this year focuses on God's knowledge. David, in Psalm 139, speaks directly to God of his character: his greatness as our Creator, his omniscience, his omnipresence and his wisdom. His knowledge of us is complete and extends to mundane parts of life and even to our secret thoughts, most of which are even those hidden from anyone else's view. His eyes are everywhere, searching each person's heart.

There are two ways to see this. We can be terrified at knowing this, knowing that God knows the real darkness of our hearts or we can be assured that God loves us even though he knows just how wicked we are and can praise him that he intimately understands and cares about us and every aspect of our lives. Because he knows our true depravity, he can prepare a perfect salvation for us.

O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.

Psalm 139:1-4

girl I am learning this right along with you. I love this verse. I have been meditating on it. When I said a short word last night to one of my kids, I turned around and said "Lord you Knew I was going to react that way, "for before a word is on my tongue, you know it completely"...BUT he still loves me.

Psalm 139 is one of my all time favorite passages of scripture. There is so much truth to be gleaned in just one area!

I just love that whole Psalm. You cannot imagine how often I have turned to it for comfort in the past year. To know that He knew me before I was even born makes eveything so amazingly miraculous.
Thank you for the wonderful reminder.

I am so glad that there are so many of us memorising the same Scriptures at the same time - it will be great to share what we are learning over the coming year.
