Psalm 139 ~ Yahweh Knows Me


A personal confession based on the Psalms.

Yahweh Knows Me ~ from Psalm 139

Yahweh has examined me, proved me,
Knows everything about me,
Sees everything in me.
Everything.
He knows my every action
And my every thought,
Even as it is being formed
Within me.

He winnows all my ways,
Separating the wheat from the chaff.
He is familiar with all my moves.
He is completely aware of every word
That comes out of my mouth,
What I say and what I mean.

Yahweh goes before me
And follows behind me.
He surrounds me on every side,
Above and below.
His hand is always upon me.

His knowledge of me is more wonderful
Than I can comprehend;
He is able to do
Exceedingly abundantly
Above all I can ask or imagine,
According to His power
At work in me.*

Everywhere I go,
Yahweh is there already.
Everywhere.
From the highest heights
To the deepest depths;
From the courts of heaven,
Where I am seated with King Jesus,**
To the ends of the earth,
He is there with me.
He guides me, protects me,
With His strong hand.

Even if darkness overwhelms me,
It will not hide me from Him.
He sees through it all;
He is Light
And He gives light.

He has made me for Himself,
Formed me in my mother’s womb,
Set me apart as His marvelous creation,
His wonderful possession.
Indeed, all His works are marvelous;
I know this deep inside
And I give Him praise.

I am His craftsmanship,
An intricate tapestry,
The handiwork of heaven
And the dust of the earth.
He saw me before I was fashioned,
And designed His purpose for me,
The book of days He desired for me
From the beginning.

How marvelous His thoughts,
How wonderful His plans for me,
They are more than I can number.
Even if I could count them up,
When I added the very last one,
He would still be with me ~
The best of all.

Yahweh examines my heart
And knows my thoughts.
When I go astray,
He restores me to the path
Ancient and eternal ~
Life!

* Ephesians 3:20
** Ephesians 2:4-6
