So I missed putting up a blog on Friday, and I missed church today because I was not feeling well. And as I was sitting here and God was tugging at me to get into my Bible.
Now all I wanted to do was to lay down, but one thing I learned is that if God is talking to you it is for a reason.
So I got up, started praying, and I opened my Bible. I did not go to particular scripture, I just opened my Bible, and it opened to Psalms 139. It seems that I have been to this particular scripture before, but there was a reason God had me go here today.
The first verse says “ O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me”.
My eyes started watering up just for that alone.
The second verse says “ Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thoughts afar off”
See, as a child of God, he knows our thoughts and our minds. He knows our hearts. He knows if we truly want to work for him, and he knows if we are just putting on a front. God knows.
This is what had tears in my eyes. Because no matter what goes on in our lives, God already knows!!!
That is a blessing.
See, sometimes we do not know what to pray for. Things in our lives may not be going the way that we think it should go, and we do not know what to ask God for, but God knows.
He knows if you are having a good day, he knows if you are having a bad day. He even knows when we want to give up. But he has a way of showing us that it will be ok.
Have you ever been in a storm in your life, and someone, you may not even know this person, comes and gives you a word of encouragement? You know it's from God, because it is exactly what you needed to hear?
It's because God knows what we need and when we need it.
He shows us that no matter what we may need, whether we speak it out loud or not, he knows and he will always be there.
Even when we try to hide from God, he knows where we are, and he is always going to be there showing us the way.
If you never read Psalms 139, I encourage you to go and read it, because it was truly a blessing to me today.
