Psalm 139 is one of the most beautiful and comforting passages in the Bible. It tells us that God knows us intimately and loves us unconditionally. This truth can be a source of great strength, hope, and comfort for us as children of God.

In the first few verses of Psalm 139, David declares that God knows everything about him. He knows his thoughts, words, actions, and even innermost desires. As David says, \”You knew me before I was born.\”

This knowledge of us by God shouldn\’t make us feel uncomfortable or ashamed. On the contrary, it can provide great comfort and security. I know it does for me. If God knows us so intimately, then he must also love us deeply. And since He loves us deeply, He will never abandon or forsake us.

The rest of Psalm 139 describes how God cares for us. He is always with us, even when we feel like we\’re alone. I\’ve been known to say that I\’m not alone even when I am alone— This is a comforting truth I hold near and dear. And He protects us from harm and danger. He is our refuge in times of trouble. And he is our strength and our help.

Let\’s Look At Some Key Themes

Psalm 139 is a beautiful and powerful psalm that speaks of God\’s love for us. Let\’s look at some key themes of the psalm and what they mean for us as children of God.

— One of the most striking themes of Psalm 139 is God\’s omnipotence. God knows everything about us, even the most intimate details of our lives. He is all-powerful and all-knowing, and nothing escapes His attention. The psalmist writes, \”You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you perceive my thoughts from afar\” (verses 2-3).

— Another key theme of Psalm 139 is God\’s omnipresence. The psalmist writes, \”Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?\” (verse 7). God is everywhere, and there is nowhere that we can go to escape His presence. He is always with us, even in the darkest times and when we feel like hiding. How comforting is that? Am I right?

— Finally, Psalm 139 speaks of God\’s love for us. The psalmist writes, \”For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother\’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works, that my soul knows very well\” (verses 13-14). God created us in His image, and He loves us unconditionally. He is always there for us and will never leave or forsake us.

All In All

Psalm 139 is a beautiful reminder of God\’s love for us. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and omnipresent. He is always with us, and He loves us unconditionally. When we struggle, we can turn to Him for comfort and guidance. When we are feeling lost, we can turn to Him for direction. And when we are feeling alone, we can turn to Him for companionship. God is always there for us and will never leave or forsake us.

All of these things are true because God loves us. He loves us unconditionally, and He will never stop loving us. This is the good news of the gospel. This is the message that we have to share with the world.

  1. Hi
    So nice massage! “He is always with us, and He is loves us unconditionally.

  2. This is beautiful! This is one of my husband’s go to chapters! It’s amazing!

    1. Thank you Susan, it’s one of my go to’s too. It sure is amazing. {{Hugs}}

  3. In a recent read of Psalm 139, I was struck by God’s ability to see everything in my life. I always thought of it in terms of when I err or stray. But it also means, He sees everything which will occur in my life and goes before me. It is why I cannot escape His Presence. He is there before I get there. I have found such comfort and peace in seeing this. Truly nothing can occur in our lives apart from His knowledge and will. You are so right, Paula, ” Psalm 139 is a beautiful reminder of God’s love for us.” Blessings, friend!

    1. I agree. I feel the same way. I am so very comforted by this Psalm always. {{Hugs}}

  5. ‘ and when I wake …’

    what a reassurance, what joy, what peace!

  6. So glad you find such comfort from this psalm

  7. One of the things I adore about this psalm is that it tells me I am not a mistake. That my character traits were given for value, not weeding out. I think it is through this psalm where I learned to see myself how God sees me – and to stop trying to tear out what God meant for good! ALL children need this psalm!

    1. You know I have to say that the same thing here applies to me. Once I understood this it assured me my worth from him and that my worth is not what the world thinks.

  8. Yes, He created us so He knew me from before I was born, and He is my comfort day by day now and forever. Thanks for sharing at SeniorSalonPitStop 257

    1. Amen, Esme. And you’re welcome.

  9. Psalm 139 brings so much comfort to us, Paula, as He is intimately acquainted with our every thought and movement. We serve the Living God!
