Truth Tuesday – God Wrote the Story of Your Life

by Kathy

Perhaps you have recently been caught off guard by something….a medical diagnosis, a change in a relationship status,  a loss of job, a pay cut, a loss of a dear family member, a friend that greatly wounded you.  It is during these times that we should remind ourselves of the truth that God is never blindsided or surprised by anything that happens to us because He wrote the story of each one of our lives.

God is well-aware of each and every “caught off guard moment”, and because he has already gone before us, he has also made a way for us to get through it.  As we travel these steps, following in his wake, we can be confident God will also walk beside us in the present and guard us from behind.  Truly, God knows us like the back of his hand, and we can rest and trust in the truth that his powerful presence hems us in on all sides

Take a moment today to read Psalm 139 and be encouraged and strengthened by how God knows you intimately and loves you unmeasurably!  May the only words left to say are these – “Lord, you are worthy!”

Psalm 139:1-24

O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to understand!

I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
11 I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
12     but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
18 I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!

19 O God, if only you would destroy the wicked!
Get out of my life, you murderers!
20 They blaspheme you;
your enemies misuse your name.
21 O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you?
Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?
22 Yes, I hate them with total hatred,
for your enemies are my enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

Have a grace full week praising God for His amazing love for you ~
