To think that the Lord of Heaven has an interest in my life is beyond my full comprehension. While God powerfully holds the stars in the sky and keeps the world spinning, He also tenderly holds my life in His hands and keeps my heart beating. The Creator of the universe is with me every moment of every day—this knowledge is too great for me to fathom. My sovereign God is personally acquainted with all my comings and my goings; there is not a detail of my life of which He is not aware. He is intimately familiar with my thoughts, my actions, and even my failings. He sees every step I take and witnesses every choice I make, and in spite of myself He still loves me so—such a lofty notion leaves me breathless and grateful. I am awed by God’s glory; I am comforted by His love; I am overwhelmed by His mercy; I am humbled by His grace. I am greatly blessed by His Presence in my life, and cling to the wonderful promise that He will never leave me.
Psalm 139:1-6, “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.”
