Morning Reflection: Psalm 139

This was actually the scripture from my time in devotion yesterday morning, but there is something so magnetic, so chilling and so beautiful about it, that I had to go back to it this morning. I know that “something” is just the thought that God knows so much about us that even that knowledge is incomprehensible. 

Psalm 139: 1-10

 1 O LORD, you have searched me 
       and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; 
       you perceive my thoughts from afar.

 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; 
       you are familiar with all my ways.

 4 Before a word is on my tongue 
       you know it completely, O LORD.

 5 You hem me in—behind and before; 
       you have laid your hand upon me.

 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, 
       too lofty for me to attain.

 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? 
       Where can I flee from your presence?

 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; 
       if I make my bed in the depths, [a] you are there.

 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, 
       if I settle on the far side of the sea,

 10 even there your hand will guide me, 
       your right hand will hold me fast.
