God knows each of us intimately. Simultaneously that thought can be comforting and alarming. There is nothing we can do to change this – it is just the nature of the God to know His creations that well.
Psalm 139 speaks of God knowing our thoughts from afar, of being familiar with all of our ways, and of even knowing our words before we speak. God is so in tune with us. God is that best of friends who can finish our sentences for us. And He is so much more! All of these things can bring one great comfort. To know that God is so connected to us is amazing and wonderful.
He is also that connected when we are lesser than we can be. God is also there when we sin. He is there when we think about sinning. And he still loves us. That is amazing. No matter our unkind thoughts, our misdeeds, or our out and out sins – God still loves us. The psalmist ends verse six with the admission that all of this is too wonderful for him, almost inconceivable. This is true for us too. And what is our repsonse? Thank you God! Thank you for loving even me!!
