In the middle section of Psalm 139 we catch an amazing picture of God and His relationship to us. We see the power and omnipotence of God in the words that speak of our own creation and in those that remind us that God’s thoughts are more vast that the grains of sand. We also see a God who saw each of our unformed bodies and wove us together. We are also told that all of our days are ordained and are written in the book of life.
Our God is a big god. Yet how easily we slip into doubt and how easily we think we can do it on our own. The cares and concerns of this world can become our focus. In this struggle we often turn inward and seek our own solutions instead of turning upward and seeking God.
Our God is also a god of details. He knows each of us from our very beginning to our last day. His hands formed us. His thoughts surround us. If we choose to live with these things as our focus, then we easily turn to God in times of stress, pain, anxiety. We easily walk in His strength and comfort. We are wonderfully made and loved deeply. May we live as God’s sacred child this day and every day, trusting in our Creator and walking in His ways.
