He Has Me Hemmed Up

“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.” (Psalm‬ ‭139‬:‭1-6‬ NIV)

In the moments when I feel like a ship without sails, this verse reminds me that with every step I take, God is there. He’s not walking besides me. Rather He’s walking behind me and before me. He considers my every every uttered words and knows it completely. 

And my thoughts! They aren’t just heard by him.  They are perceived by Him. To be considered, carefully thought through. In the milliseconds it takes to think and say my thoughts, He knows it. 

Can’t wrap my mind around serving a great big God who sits up high but looks down low on little ol me.
