In the world but not of it

You know all about this…

O LORD, you know all about this. Psalms 35:22

Later in his life David would write Psalms 139 and from a different perspective than Psalms 35, where he was perplexed and crying out to God over his difficult circumstances, he is now rejoicing in how awesome God is in knowing him so personally, so intimately…

In fact, David says concerning God’s knowledge of him “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! (Psalms 139:6)

O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. You go before me and follow me. Psalms 139:1-4

What is it about your situation right now that you believe God is not aware of? Is it the silence in response to your countless prayers and crying out to Him? Is your marriage struggling so much that you can’t see a resolution; are the finances lacking so greatly that you are now really questioning God’s provision in your life; has a friend turned against you; is the direction you believed you were being led to now seemingly changing course?

We judge His love for us by outward circumstances or the lack of them, yet right here in the word we have this great reminder of His deep knowledge of us, every thought, every anxiety, every detail.

Lord, my heart is so heavy today with the circumstances surrounding me. I desperately want your will but I am failing to know it, to see it. Your silence weighs on me and I can’t seem to find rest. Please Father; help me to see here in your word the wonderful and final truths about you and how you see me…

Strengthen me Lord to accept these truths and realize that you know all about “this” situation in my life and that your plan will soon unfold. I am faced with so much I don’t know, so help me to fall back on what I do know, what is true about you and your love towards me…

You know all about this…
