Lord, you have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I stand up;
you understand my thoughts from far away.
You observe my travels and my rest;
you are aware of all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue,
you know all about it, Lord.
You have encircled me;
you have placed your hand on me.
This wondrous knowledge is beyond me.
It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.
Psalm 139:1-6 (CSB)
We have a God who knows us inside and out. He doesn’t know us intimately in order to expose us or condemn us, but His knowing us is meant to fill us, comfort us, satisfy us.
He understands us even when we don’t have the words to express it to Him in prayer. He surrounds us, embracing us in His arms, like a baby being held by its mother. If you feel lost, if life feels overwhelming, if you feel alone and unseen, take heart, sister. You are known in your innermost thoughts, worries, and aches and loved and held by the One who knows all things.
