Bible Study: Psalm 139


Hey there!

Unfortunately, on Sunday when we were fighting for a spot in the finals for tennis, the rain bucketed down and extinguished our season.  It’s a shame, but oh well.  It’s the second consecutive season my team has finished 5th – one place out of the finals.  There’s always next season, though :]

I’ve never actually done a Bible Study.  Monday’s are tough days, so I think it’s important to start the week well.  I’m going to try and post Bible Studies every Monday from now on.  Let’s see how it goes!

Bible Study: Psalm 139

1 O LORD, you have searched me
and you know me.2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.

3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.

4 Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.

5 You hem me in—behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?

8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, [a] you are there.

9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,

10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”

12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

17 How precious to [b] me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!

18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.

19 If only you would slay the wicked, O God!
Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!

20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.

21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD,
and abhor those who rise up against you?

22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139 is one of my favourite Psalms.  God, the creator of the world, knows us from the inside out.  It may seem unbelievable, but God knows what actions we will take before we even take them.  He knows our past, present and future.  He knows every part of us because He is our Creator.

As humans, we are made in the image of God.  This does not necessarily mean the physical image, but we share God’s character.  We have God’s love, mercy, grace, joy.

In the dark times as well as the bright, God is by our sides.  He is next to us, with us, inside of us.  He will help us through every hurdle life throws at us.  All we must do is accept Jesus as our saviour and love God with all our heart.

So, pray tonight and thank God for creating us in His perfect image and being there for us through everything.  Thanks, God.
