Search Me, O God, and Know My Heart

Passage: Psalm 139
Service Type:

Psalm 139

1. God Knows Everything About Me: Psalm 139:1-6 (NASB)

1Lord, You have searched me and known me.  2You know when I sitdown and when I get up; You understand my thought from far away.
3You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with
all my ways.  4Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, Lord, You know it all. 5You have encircled me behind and in front, And
placed Your hand upon me. 6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot comprehend it.

2. God Will Always Be There: Psalm 139:7-12 (NASB)

7Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your
presence? 8If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in
Sheol, behold, You are there. 9If I take up the wings of the dawn, If I
dwell in the remotest part of the sea, 10Even there Your hand will lead
me, And Your right hand will take hold of me. 11If I say, “Surely the
darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,”
12Even darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the
day. Darkness and light are alike to You.

3. God Knew Me Before I Was Born: Psalm 139:13-16 (NASB)

13For You created my innermost parts; You wove me in my mother’s
womb. 14I will give thanks to You, because I am awesomely and
wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it
very well. 15My frame was not hidden from You When I was made in
secret, And skillfully formed in the depths of the earth; 16Your eyes
have seen my formless substance; And in Your book were written
All the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one
of them.

4. God’s Care is Overwhelming  Psalm 139:17-18 (NASB)

17How precious also are Your thoughts for me, God! How vast is the
sum of them! 18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.

5. Deliver Me From Wicked  Psalm 139:19-22 (NASB)

19If only You would put the wicked to death, God; Leave me, you men
of bloodshed. 20For they speak against You wickedly, And Your
enemies take Your name in vain. 21Do I not hate those who hate You,
Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? 22
I hate them
with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.

6. Search Me, O God!  Psalm 139:23-24

23Search me, God, and know my heart; Put me to the test and know my
anxious thoughts; 24And see if there is any hurtful way in me, And lead
me in the everlasting way.
