The Lord Knows Our Every Day

“You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways.” – Psalm 139:3 (AMPC)

Each day we can rest assured that the Lord knows our path. He is acquainted with every detail. He even sifts through the things of our day, setting aside those things which do not need to be a part of the day’s activities. He wants what is best for us according to His perfect ways.

God is acquainted with all we are and all our ways. He knows better than any what each of our days should hold—even when we try to take on too much or when we attempt to tackle things that need to wait.

Some days things do not go as planned. Even in this, Father God desires for us to learn to respond as Christ would, in patience and kindness. He yearns for us to seek Him in these moments, to know what He might want to do in and through us.

In our every moment, God wants to help us set apart Jesus our Lord and leader, rather than ourselves, our fears or other things.

“…in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.”Psalm 139:16 (AMPC)

Perhaps when things aren’t going our way, the Lord has something else to pinpoint, to lead us to do. Perhaps it’s a person whose path we would otherwise fail to cross, someone who is to encourage us or that we are to give courage to ourselves. Is God simply are trying to get our attention, to lead us to do something else of greater importance, or calling us to simply rest? Maybe we aren’t abiding in Christ as we should, and He wants to bring our awareness back to Him again.

Our every day is not always easy, but He is working to fashion us into a reflection of His Son. In our every moment, God wants to help us set apart Jesus our Lord and leader, rather than ourselves, our fears or other things. As in a mirror, He desires us to reflect the beauty of Christ’s character and surrender to the Father.

“And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.” – 2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC)

What we focus on, what we spend time thinking about, is what we become most like. The people we hang out with most, we tend to be like over time. So may we want to be like Jesus, and spend much time beholding His loving heart, His kind tenderness, His perfect ways.

A Prayer: Lord, help us yield to You even when You orchestrate our day differently than we originally had planned. Help us let go and follow Your lead. Help us to trust in You, our Good Shepherd. Help us to be still and know that You alone are God.

  1. Psalm 139 is one of my most favorite scriptures in the Bible. I read it frequently and it encourages me so much. How can we not believe God loves us after reading this passage. Thanks for your insights on this. I really took them to heart.

    1. Yes, Rhonda, I love Psalm 139 as well! It’s one of those Psalms I can go to any time, any day, and feel His hand upon me and His love over my life. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I pray you are doing well.

    2. Yes, Amanda, I’m doing real well. Been busy quilting, sewing and crocheting lately. Joined a group called Carolina Quilters who make quilts for charity. It’s fun and fulfilling to give these quilts we make to people in need of them or to bless someone. I’m also taking 4 other classes at the Senior Center. It helps me get out of the house some. Since I don’t drive anymore I found myself pretty reclusive and I wasn’t happy about it except that I had hours a day to spend with the Lord which has grown me in leaps and bounds spiritually. Now I’m doing useful things and getting a bit more activity in an area that I really enjoy. I love doing all my crafts. I scrapbook and make cards too and work with plastic canvas. And I still spend 2-3 hours a day with the Lord. Hope you are doing well. I miss going to Servanthood and Melba’s bible study though. I just don’t have a ride to them anymore Sigh!!! Good to hear from you. Love you sister friend.

    3. That’s wonderful! Even in the challenges we face, the Lord is so good to use everything to bring us closer to Him and pour into us even more than we could imagine! And knowing Him more is a better thing than anything else. ❤

      I will be praying for God to provide someone who could give you a ride to the Bible Studies, too! We no longer live as close, but I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't someone nearby who could.

      Blessings and Christ's love to you.
      Amanda
