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 You know our path. You even search out every detail of it. You sift our path and our ways concerning each day. In this, You set aside those things which need not be a part of the day’s doings. You show us what is best according to Your perfect plans.

You are acquainted with all of us and all of our ways. You know best what each day 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. But in this, You desire for us to respond as Christ would, in patience and kindness. You desire for us to seek You in these moments for what You have in store.

“…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 You have something else to pinpoint, to bring us to do. Perhaps You simply are trying to get our attention, or call us to simply rest. Maybe we aren’t abiding in Christ as we should, and we need to be aware of Your ever-present Holy Spirit within us.

It is not always easy, but You are working in us to fashion us into a reflection of Jesus, Your Son. As in a mirror, You desire us to reflect the beauty of His character and heart.

“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)


Beholding is becoming.

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.

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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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. <3

      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
