“Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up;
you understand my thoughts from far away.” – Psalm 139:1-2
In Psalm 139, David describes our God with beautiful imagery—how He creates us, surrounds us, protects us, leads us, and guides us. As much as we desire to be fully known by Him, the thought of God knowing everything about us can be a bit scary. We might even cringe at the idea that the God of the Universe knows all of our thoughts, struggles, and sins.
However, there is good news: God knows everything about you and still sticks around. God isn’t afraid to be near broken and messy people. He sees you fully and loves you passionately, and He’s proven this at the cross. God sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life you couldn’t and take the punishment you deserved, so that you might experience His abundant love, mercy, and grace. You no longer have to live in shame or be afraid. Because of Jesus, you are fully known and deeply loved by God.
Our sin separates us from God, but Jesus made a way for us to be reconciled to God. When we accept His free gift of salvation, it truly changes everything. As Christians, we are no longer condemned but forgiven; we are no longer bound but free; we are no longer defined by our sin but by God’s grace. Let’s begin today by remembering what Jesus has done for us, thanking God for saving us, and celebrating the fact that we are forgiven and free!
Pray for the health, encouragement, and care of our online church community during this season.
