“In this moment God is saying to you: "I know. I'm here. I've always been here.”

May 3rd, 2020

As we continue to set our eyes on God, being reminded of his never-changing nature in the midst of an ever-changing world, we are given hope and peace.  But hope and peace don't come simply from recognizing God's holiness, love, and power.  For these characteristics to be truly comforting the God of holiness, love, and, power must be near.  He must be with us.

Application Questions:

  1. How can you practically meditate on Psalm 139 this week (reading it, memorizing it, praying through it, etc.)?

  2. Why is it comforting that God knows everything?

  3. Why is it comforting that God is present with you?

  4. Why is it comforting that God has always been with you?

  5. Of the three responses modeled in the Psalm (intimate comfort, righteous anger, humble surrender), which are most familiar and which do you need to seek to develop?
