Psalm 139 is one of the most powerful psalms in the Bible. This psalm comes from King David, and it shows us that before we ever began to pursue God, God pursued us.
- God knows the real you. (Psalm 139:1-4.)
- God is closer to you than you realize. (Psalm 139:7-8.)
- God has always been at work in your life. (Psalm 139:13, 15-16.)
Psalm 139:1-4 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.
