04-09 – I am Wonderfully Made – WooHoo!

“Ultimately you are doing what you do for one of two reasons: to serve oneself or to serve God.”  
- Unknown

Overview: Psalm 139 is perhaps the most intimate of psalms.  It speaks clearly of God’s interest in individuals. King David meditates on the omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence of God. He acknowledges that God is with him no matter where he may go. God is with him in darkness. God is with him in light. God is with him at sea. God was with him as He formed him in his mother’s womb. God holds David in His right hand (the hand of authority). David acknowledges that God knows him, thinks of him, and has fashioned his days!  We too can claim Psalm 139 as our own.

Memory Verse: Psalm 139:17-18 - How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You.

Psalm 139
 
Psalm 1391 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; 
You understand my thought afar off.
3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, 
And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
5 You have hedged me behind and before, 
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; 
It is high, I cannot attain it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, 
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” 
Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, 
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, 
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. 
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, 
O God! How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; 
When I awake, I am still with You.
19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! 
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly; 
Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You? 
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred; 
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; 
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, 
And lead me in the way everlasting.

Confession: I will diligently obey the voice of the Lord. I believe His favor and blessings rest on me. I am blessed in the city and in the country. I will walk in His blessings. It is the desire of my heart to please Him in all that I do.
