Psalm 139 A Hemming Presence
“Even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You.” Psalm 139:12 (NIV)
What can we say in the face of hardship apart from we have a God who lightens our burdens. A God who makes all things alright; a fixer of broken lives. We need to cast all our cares unto the Lord, He cares about us and He is wise to fix them.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 2 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
His love fixes our problems. In His love He calls us in, holds us and sings songs of beauty upon us. When we allow ourselves to be drawn to Him He sees us in the same light He saw us in when He creates us. He calls us very good. He weaved us intricately. He took His time with us. We are His prized creation therefore He will never allow us to fend for ourselves.
“I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27 (NIV)
God would not make us this special, restore relationship with us and put His Spirit within us if He did not treasure us. We are God’s most treasured possession.
