Evening Reflection on Psalm 139

Sometimes we don’t let people get to know us completely because we are afraid they will discover something about us that they won’t like. But God already knows everything about us, even the number of hairs on our head, and still he accepts us and loves us. His total awareness of us, therefore, should comfort us because he stays with us through every situation and in every trial, protecting, loving, and guiding us, and knowing and loving us completely.

God’s character goes into the creation of every person. When you feel worthless or even being to hate yourself, remember that God’s Spirit is ready and willing to work within you. Because of Jesus Christ we are new persons, so we should have as much respect and regard for ourselves as our maker has for us.

God cares even about our anxious thoughts, both little cares and devastating obsessions. Anxiety robs us our joy. All of us, from teenagers to retirees, face crippling performance expectations, fear of the future, and the daily new of this dangerous present world. Our emotions lie to us, saying, “God doesn’t care” or “He isn’t involved”. Netflix, Tiktok and television lie to us, portraying the world as though all hope is lost. Bringing our anxieties to God cools our overheated minds and connects us to him, the great comforter.

Loving God,

please grant us peace of mind and calm our troubled hearts. Our souls is like a turbulent sea. We can’t seem to find our balance so we stumble and worry constantly. Give us the strength and clarity of mind to find our purpose and walk the path you’ve laid out for us.
