In His Word Wednesday: Reassuring Presence

In His Word Wednesday is becoming one of my favorite blog posts of the week. I love it! Every bit of it! Why? Because I anxiously (in an excited way ~ not a worried way) open myself up to God and ask Him to lead me to the perfect scripture to share here. Guess what!?! He always comes through!


God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there, too— your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful— I can't take it all in! Psalm 139:1-6 (The Message)

Wow! Amazing! How often do we think we are "fooling" God by simply telling Him what He wants to hear ~ not understanding fully just how much HE knows. By golly He created you! He knows what irritates you, what makes you cry happy tears, what takes your breath away. He knows the things you long to hear from your spouse, the words you wished you told that loved one before they passed, what dreams and passions you hide from fear of being judged and criticized. It is scripture like this that just makes me sit in AWE of God Almighty ~ and how much I throw away of our relationship! He is there when no one else is. He knows when I am sick, and don't want to be a burden. He is behind me when I sit and start this writing process every day.

Here let me show you again.

You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Psalm 139: 1-6 NIV

I had to show the same scripture in another version. It wasn't until recently that I truly began searching the various Bible versions and my mind has been opened to so much more! I encourage you today, to see the "God glimpses".. those moments that I know are ordained solely by Him and Him alone ~ the Creator of all.
