Hearing God in Psalms 139

Published on January 26, 2013marketing By Susanne

Sometimes the topic of Personal Spiritual warfare can be quite heavy to digest.  When that seems to be what your heart is say, if helps to take a few steps aside and find the comfort and peace that only the Scriptures can offer.  Here is one of my favourite passages in Psalms 139, from the transliteration by Eugene H. Peterson in ‘The Message’.

“God, investigate my life and get all the facts firsthand.   I’m an open book to You.  Even from a distance, You know what I’m thinking.  You know when I leave and when I get back.  I’m never out of Your sight.  You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence.  I look behind me and You’re there, then up ahead and You’re there too – Your reassuring presence, coming and going This is too much, too wonderful.  I can’t take i all in!
