All knowing Heavenly Father, I come before You through the Name of Your Son Jesus Christ to bring You praise and thanksgiving for Your ways of perfection and Your flawless plans. I stand in awe of You, that there is no knowledge or wisdom apart from You. You are the source of all knowledge and the center of all understanding. Thank you for the blessing of allowing me to know You on a personal level and for You knowing everything about me. Verses 1-2: “O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.” It is awesome that You know me so well that You even know my thoughts and my words before they come out of my mouth.
As a person I look at the outward appearance, but You as God look at the inward parts of my mind and heart. Verse 4: “For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.” Thank you for making it clear in Your Word (the Bible) that I didn’t just happen at birth. You had detailed plans for me way before I was born. Verses 13 and 16a: “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb…. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.“
It is a great blessing that Your love for me transcends the bounds of time and space. What a privilege it is as a believer in Jesus Christ to be enveloped by Your love, not by the merits of what I have done, but what Christ has done on my behalf.
Thank you for this beautiful, comforting Scripture You have provided. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
