Fully Known, Fully Loved

“O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.”

(Psalm 139:1-4)

When I was 7 years old, I had a school teacher who would threaten her class with the words, “remember, God sees everything you do.”

The truth that God is the Ever Present, All Knowing One, was never meant as a threat, to strike fear and unease in peoples’ hearts. These fears, and indeed the people who instil them in others, are based in deep-seated doubt and disbelief in the unwavering goodness of God.

A little child is comforted, not afraid, to know that their loving parent is watching over them; likewise, when we are confident in the love and care of our Father God, His constant presence and complete knowledge of us is a great comfort.

How wonderful it is for us to be fully known and fully loved by God!

In part 2, we will be looking at verse 5 of this psalm, and what it means to be hemmed in by God.

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
