You perceive every movement of our hearts and souls,
and You understand our every thought before it even enters our minds.
You are so intimately aware of us, Lord.
You read our hearts like open books
and You know all the words we’re about to speak
before we even start a sentence!
You know every step we will take before our journey even begins. [Ps. 139:1-4TPT]
You’ve gone into our future to prepare the way,
and in kindness you follow behind us
to spare us from the harm of our past.
With Your hand of love upon our lives,
You impart a blessing to us.
This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible!
Your understanding of us brings us wonder and strength.
Where could we go from your Spirit?
Where could we run and hide from your face?
If we go up to heaven, you’re there!
If we go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too!
If we fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there!
If we fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! [Ps.139:5-9 TPT]
Wherever we go, your hand will guide us;
your strength will empower us.
It’s impossible to disappear from You
or to ask the darkness to hide us,
for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into our night.
There is no such thing as darkness with You.
The night, to you, is as bright as the day;
there’s no difference between the two. [Ps.139:10-12 TPT]
You formed our innermost being, shaping our delicate inside
and our intricate outside,
and wove them all together in our mother’s womb.
We thank You, God, for making us so mysteriously complex!
Everything You do is marvellously breathtaking.
It simply amazes us to think about it!
How thoroughly You know us, Lord!
You even formed every bone in our bodies
when You created us in the secret place,
carefully, skillfully shaping us from nothing to something. [Ps.139:13-15 TPT]
You saw who You created us to be before we became us!
Before we’d even seen the light of day,
the number of days You planned for us
were already recorded in Your book.
Every single moment You are thinking of us!
How precious and wonderful to consider
that You cherish us constantly in your every thought!
O God, your desires toward us are more
than the grains of sand on every shore!
When we awake each morning, you’re still with us.
Examine us through and through;
find out everything that may be hidden within us.
Put us to the test and sift through all our anxious cares.
See if there is any path of pain we’re walking on,
and lead us back to your glorious, everlasting ways—
the path that brings us back to You. [Ps.139:16-24 TPT]
The Lord make His face shine upon us,
And be gracious to us;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon us,
And give us peace.” Amen [Num. 6:24-26 NKJV]
