1 O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
2 You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
3 You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
4 You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord. Psalm 139:1-4 NLT
The Lord tells us in this beautiful song that he knows us even better than we know ourselves. There is absolutely no detail of our life that is hidden from him or that he does not know about. He knows our every thought before we even think it. He knows what we are going through and how to help us through these times. He knew us in our mothers womb for goodness sakes. And in John 14:6 he tells us he is the way, the truth and the life.
So why is it sometimes, so hard to go to him when we need it the most? Do we think we can figure it out on our own? Probably. Are we too prideful at times to submit to his authority? Probably. Do we forget that he is always there for us and will be more than happy to help us? Probably.
From my experience, all of the above have been true at one time or another. But when I look back I always find that he was there; ready, willing and most certainly able, to help me through. We all need to rejoice in the One who understands us completely and loves us perfectly. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us.
I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that he is always true to his word and cannot lie. He is the only thing in our temporary life here on this earth that NEVER changes or varies. He is the absolute of all absolutes.
Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow.
